Hello all new to this site here is my problem i have a Sig Saur 300 win mag rifle w/syn stock its only about 4 years old i put a BSA CATsEYE Illuminated scope on it 3.5-10x50mm problem is that the scope doesent hold upto the 300 win mag well contantly being jarred out of site and now it apears one of the inner glass has shifted a bit so guess its time for a new scope that will hold up to the mag caliber just dont know which one too many choices like buying a car been toying a few ideas and sugg.

was looking at the

zeiss conguest

burris fullfeild 2 with lps lights reticle

leupold vari 2

weaver grand slam deer hunter

i am new here but i will even reply to this one. all the scopes you mention as ones you are thinking about getting would be great. i wouldn't buy anything BSA ever not even for a air rifle. i might even go so far as saying they are in order ziess, burris, leupold, then weaver. the BSA was just a learning experience nothing more. also i have had bad times with bushnell but they were $30 to $60 scopes, but the 3200 and 4200 elite scopes are from what i hear very good scopes, so the old saying you get what you pay for also comes into play. a good rule of thumb is go cheap on the rifle and expensive on the optics is better than the other way around. that sig should be a very accurate gun but not with a BSA on top. good luck and sorry about the missed deer. better to miss than wound though, maybe with a good scope you will get a second chance. happy hunting! also mounts and rings are important as well. i like a one piece base and weaver style rings i don't like the leupold mounts that twist lock in the front and have the windage adjustment in the back i had one fail on me on the windage end and since then i won't use one again.

Burris Elite 4200 and Burris Signature select scopes are great scopes for the money check out the features

on both and see which one you prefer. The 4200 has the best glass and the Signature Select has the most

reticle choices and is more robust scope IMO with nice optics in this price range. To upgrade from there try the

Meopta Meostar scopes they are next on my list, for or a little more money get something really nice like the

Kahles CL without the multi-zero for about $800. These are my hunting scope picks. Good luck and let us know

what you decided on.
