I have explored several the options on several scopes.

I want a mil dot or bal plex type reticle. I have a tikka T3 with muzzle brake added. I also like the side focus on the buckmaster. Help me choose.

 

Bushnell 3200      7-21mildot

Bushnell 4200      6-24 mildot

Burris FF2         &nb sp; 4-14 bal plex

Burris SS         &nbs p;   4-16 bal plex

Nikon buckmaster 4-14 mildot

Weaver V24          6-24 mildot

 

Of couse I want to be as cheap as possible. And, will I sacrifice alot of preformance getting the Weaver V24 vs the Bushnell 4200. $500 is max.

 

Thanks 

 

please help!!

I like the Buckmaster, but I have to go with the 4200 out of that group.
 
Have you considered the Nikon Monarch?? Or are you stuck on a ballistic or mil dot reticle??

All are good scopes but out of the ones you mentioned I would say the Bushnell 4200 Eilte is the best and a close second I'd say the Burris Signature.

    jfab1165,    &nb sp;   

              I have no idea of how much this partcular scope costs, but Burris came out with a new variation on their FF2 that paints it OD green and puts a Target turret on top of it.  If they do not have it here yet, you may want to hold off and view it at Burris's website.  www.burrisoptics.com   It is certainly worth a look.  I have heard some very good things about the reliability of the FF2 line from some gunsmiths, as far as durability and performance were concerned, so that makes me want to hold off on buying another scope until I have had a chance to check out their new offerings for my soon to be bought 7mmSTW. 

              A new gun is always a cause to celebrate, don't you think?

                 Just got rid of a 7mm WSM, mostly because I needed the money, but it kicked like a rented mule and did not hold a good group with factory fodder.  I reload enough with the rest of my guns, I did not need another project to work on this year.Hope that this helps!

Oh, by the way.  It was a WInchester M70 Featherweight, which are beautiful guns, but I needed function more than form.  I hope your Tikka T3 is better.
