    zeiss conquest. 4.5/14x50,

    mag is low enough for close range shots and has about enough for longer shots in the day light, plenty of mag adjustment for under the lamp.

    just my thoughts as its what i have on my 20 tactical and it works well under the lamp and out to 450 yards + in the daylight.

    had a few Bushnells in the past bud.

    would not put one on a rifle again, over priced for what they are and what they deliver, not bad in daylight but i found them not that good under the lamp.

    nice meopta 7x50A on the sales section nice simple scope no messing just zero load and shoot.nice glass for the cash.

    cant disagree with bob, ive both the 4.5x14 and 6.5x20 Conquests on my foxing rifles and faultless and to me for the money 500 ish they are unbeatable, had an elite 6500 4-30x50, ok but nothing special when compared to the zeiss in my opinion

    You will get a good scope for that money . I would buy S&B Swarovski or Zeiss. Are you looking for variable or fixed power? Illuminated or not? I've had a few scopes and picked up a 2nd hand Schmidt zenith illuminated off here within your budget for my 223 great foxing rifle

    Swarovski every time. Although just to through a spanner in the works, I'd buy a Nightforce 8-32x56 with the
    Np2-DD ret. Anyway best of luck with what ever you choose. They're all great scopes.
