I am looking at the following 3-9x40 scopes for a Remington BDL 30.06 bolt action.  The gun is mainly used for hunting Blacktail deer and wild pigs? 

I am looking at the Bushnell 3200 Elite, the Burris Full Field, Pentax Whitetails Unlimited, or the Weaver Grand Slam.  I've done a little research and I am leaning towards the Burris, but I'd like some fellow shooters opinons.

Thanks

All pretty good scopes.  I don't personally like Weaver, but I will admit that they are good.

That Weaver Grand Slam is one bright scope. It's durability has also been tested to be top notch.

I have a 1973 vintage BDL also in '06.Bought a Grand Slam 3-9x40 when they first came out.Rifle now has a 2yr old Vari-XIII 3.5-10x50.Yes the Leupold is brighter,but that's it.Image & colors aren't any sharper& the Weavers 1/2 the price.Same Weaver is on a 14yr old grandson's sporterized Swede Mauser.The kids on his 2nd barrel on the Swede & the Grand Slam is still going strong.I don't believe you'll do any better in that price range,plus they're tougher than a hobo turd.Hell the little heathen shoots 10k rounds a yr.I made the mistake of telling him send me the empty brass & I'd load for him,it's a full time job let me tell ya.

We need more 14 year old kids as active and enthusiastic about hunting and shooting and more parents and grandparents to encourage and assist like you have.....good job.

   I consider the the Sightron 3x9x42, (around $200) as well  I bought one approx. 4 mo. ago, and, in my opinion, is as good a scope as I own or have looked at.  Very good scope, at any price.

Did Weaver ever address the issue of that huge zoom ring on the Grand Slam?  I know some rifle's bolts wouldn't clear it.    I'd go for the  FFII.

Sightron SII 3-9x42 has better glass and better adjustments than other scopes in this group.  Durability is top notch as well.

 

Burris Fullfield II has BallisticPlex reticle.

 

It's a tough call.
