Looking for a nice scope withing the 150-250 range that has a regular mil dot reticle. No illum please! Was looking at the bushnell elite 3200 10x40 fixed power. Its going on my Rem 700 sps varmint in 223 and the leupold 4-12x40 is going on my new deer/pig rifle (weatherby vanguard s2/rem 700 sps 7 mag, havent decided yet). Ideas on the bushnell? Suggestions on others? I like the fixed power because I never adjust my zoom anyway it always stays 1 1/2 below max and never moves.

I have a Redfield 10X with a duplex(sorry not mil dot) I would sell for the $150-200 price range. Took it off a 25-06 I got from a guy who used it to shoot squirrels. If you are interested contact me. I would sell it to help fund my Africa trip.

Here's a review of the Bushnell 3200 10x40 Tactical mil-dot. They're decent scopes. http://www.snipercen...om/bushtact.htmI like something with a bit more magnification for my varmint rifles. So I have a couple Vortex Viper in 6.5-20x44 mil-dot scopes. But they're in the $399 range. Consider the Nikon Buckmasters 4.5-14x40 mil-dot. I've got those on my .30-06 and .270 Win. They don't click as true 1/4 MOA, but they're fine for hunting and target shooting using mil-dots. If you want something inexpensive to just get by with for now, you can get a Simmons Whitetail Classic 6-24x50 mil-dot for $125 on Midway. Although it's a Simmons, these are pretty tough scopes. I have the duplex version and it consistently would hold 1/2" groups and sometimes better with my .223 varmint rifle. I used it for a couple years while I figured out what better glass I wanted to put on that rifle. Nothing wrong with it, though.

Hmm, I'll check that link out for sure. I like something with high magnification but as stated I rarely ever adjust once I'm sighted in. I'll think on it. Its hard to decide with so many options out there.

It's easy to decide. Buy a Hawke from us and you'll never look back.

I have been meaning to get a Hawke for some time now. Maybe on the M77/357 I have been eying.I am currently shooting on a Vortex Diamonback 4-12x on my .308 and I love it. Affordable and clear. Better than a lot of my more pricey scopes.Good luck!

I talked to the Guys from Hawke at the Shot Show I was impressed with what they had to offer with Mil Dots. They also have some great "free" software that might help out some folks. Here is the link. http://www.hawkeopti...m/apps/brc.html

You know what Desert Dog I just may. Do you guys offer fixed power scopes? Out of curiosity. If not then I want something with a higher variable power but still with a mil dot. No illum or nothing. I never plan on shooting at night. If I did I would just use the AR. First check in march is an extra check and the wife has given her blessings for me to get my gun and scope. So I'll be contacting you then. See what kind of deals you guys got going on. Its my first non leupold scope so we'll see how it goes. Any of you other guys have any reviews of them?
