I've been very impressed with a Burris Fulllfield II that I bought. Very clear optics and repeatable adjustments. The 3x9 goes for about $200 on line.

My 2 cents worth is to wait and buy some good quallity glass . Your accuracy depends on it!!. Check out a Leupold vari- x 2 3x9 x 40mm . A good scope for the money very accurate and a life time warranty. Will take years of abuse. Its a little more than you want to spend , but will make the differance when you need to make a 1/4 " adjustment @ 100 yards.. JMHO....

Another vote for Mueller if you want budget optics. If you just want to see an object in normal conditions a Mueller will suit you well.
Bullets are pretty worthless. All they do is hang around waiting to get loaded.

Nikon Buckmaster 6-18x40 w/ target dot. Also comes with target turetts if you want to use them( I don't.). About 150 more than you're wanting to spend but worth the extra cash.

I've got the Mueller and I've got the Buckmaster with the BDC. The one thing I really like about the Buckmaster is the side focus. But I really like both scopes. The adjustment (all adjustments) knobs seem much easier to move on my Mueller, but that could be because the Buckmaster is camo dipped.

I would go with the Nikon. I have one of the 6-18x40 on my Browning 25-06 and love it. I picked up mine on for about $280 shipped.

I'm tossing in my vote for tha Burris. They're nice n' clear and have alot of eye relief. I have a couple of them and I love them. That B-Plex reticle is handy once you get it figured out for the load you shoot. The nikons are really clear too but I don't care for the little circles that they use for thier bullet drop marks.
My guns are mine, they aren't for sale, and I only give guns to people that I really like. So I guess the government is **** out of luck.
