    There's a Schmidt & bender 2.5 - 10 x 56 in the classifieds for 600. Cracking scope for the money.

    Try R Macleod

    Quiet a few of the lads on here recommend this company. Should give you a good idea of what you can get for your money. Private sales usually a little cheaper.

    For the money,you won't do better than the S&B mentioned above.

    Id pick up a vortex viper and get some change. Not only is the glass top notch but the warranty means other than loosing it you have a scope for life regardless of what you do to it. Pretty much and insurance policy really...

    I am biased towards smaller, lower power, simpler scopes, but for all around hunting a good 3-9X or 4-12X, 40mm and no more than 50mm, is hard to beat for value, because they are mass produced.

    The Vortex Viper and the upper mid range Leupolds offer a lot of value. Both are clear, bright, very rugged, argon filled, and guaranteed for life, not just to you, but to the next owners, second hand, third hand, etc.

    The VX3 3.5-10x50 is light weight for what it does.
    Some I have used on other people's rifles are the Mark AR in 3-9x40 and 4-12x40. Come with Mil Dot reticle and 1/10 mil turrets, options of custom BDC turrets, illuminated dot with variable intensity, and AO. $600 MSRP, street prices below $400. They are not bulky and don't weigh but about 1 pound to your rifle.

    Sako 75 6.5x55 - Z6i 3-18x50. Sako 75 .308 Habicht 2.5-10x56. Beretta 690. Benelli M2.

    Hi. Check this link out.

    I bought the 2.5 - 15 x 56 on this guys recommendation. I've had it on my 22-250 for about 6 months. Can't complain one little bit, especially for the price. I was looking at the Meopta R2 at the time and this is better, to my eyes anyway, plus it has parallax adjust, if you're thinking range work. Waste of time for me though.
    It isn't a Zeiss HT, which I have on my 308, but thats 3 times the price. I'd say the light gathering and brightness are as good if not better than the Duralyt it replaced. And I really liked the Duralyt. Might be a touch heavy but that comes with the size of mag.. It tracks perfect and so far been very resilient to my clumsiness..

    Just a thought..
    Regards, cjs.
