Looking at scopes for my Tikka T3 300 WSM. It has a Bushnell Elite 3200 3-9X40 right now. I'd like something with more magnification as my eyes arent what the used to be. Trying to keep the cost under 1000.00 or so. 

http://www.samplelist.com/Swarovski-4-12x50-Z3-Rifle-Scope-DEMO-A-P3475.aspx

http://www.samplelist.com/Kahles-4-12x50-Helia-KX-Rifle-Scope-DEMO-B-P1095.aspx

http://www.samplelist.com/Zeiss-45-14x44-Conquest-Rifle-Scope-DEMO-B-P2951.aspx

http://www.samplelist.com/Burris-4-16x50-Xtreme-Tactical-XTR-Rifle-Scope-DEMO-B-P3373.aspx

http://www.samplelist.com/Bushnell-45-30x50-Elite-6500-Rifle-Scope-DEMO-A-P3083.aspx

http://www.samplelist.com/Trijicon-5-20x50-Accu-Point-Rifle-Scope-DEMO-A-P3476.aspx

Obviously these all came off the sample list to keep the price down. I've bought from there before with no complaints. Have no problem with buying new either though. I put the Bushnell and the Trijicon in the above list because I own and like their products.

Thanx

I will not attempt to tell you what you should do, but GIVEN YOUR LIST, I wll tell you my rank order:

1) 
http://www.samplelist.com/Swarovski-4-12x50-Z3-Rifle-Scope-DEMO-A-P3475.aspx


2)
http://www.samplelist.com/Kahles-4-12x50-Helia-KX-Rifle-Scope-DEMO-B-P1095.aspx
3)
http://www.samplelist.com/Bushnell-45-30x50-Elite-6500-Rifle-Scope-DEMO-A-P3083.aspx
4) http://www.samplelist.com/Zeiss-45-14x44-Conquest-Rifle-Scope-DEMO-B-P2951.aspx

with the caution that the Bushnell is going to decrease in brightness as power increases.  I would almost 
put the Conquest above it, but I do LIKE more power.

1st Swarovski - best glass and best customer service bar none.  Cost more but you get what you pay for.

2nd Zeiss

You have a diverse assortment of scopes, there; several categories smashed up together.

For a hunter, I too would say go Swaro.

I am a Tikka fan, great rifles, very accurate, buttery smooth actions.
