    Blimey mate with a budget of that amount you can take your pick of many scopes out there!! I'd be getting a meopta 7x50 for around 200 quid and a 2nd hand nv setup!!

    Theres a Deben nightech for 275 in the classifieds....4-16x56, illuminated mil dot ret.
    I have one on my .243 and Id have another in a flash, these are as rare as hens teeth and made, I believe, by the old Japan optics so excellent performance.

    If you've got a budget of up to 900 you'd b better looking about on here or even MacLeods at tain and picking up a good second hand Swarovski zeiss or s&b. something in the range of a 3-12 or 4-16 with a 50 or 56 objective lense but for that type of money you'll get something decent. I got a Swaro z6 2.5-15 and a Swaro av 6-18 both within that budget in mint condition second hand just take ur time and dont jump in
