i assume its a target/ hunting rifle? the terrain where it is generally used? if its a hunting rifle to be used in thick woods like that of NYS. look for a 3x9 or 4x12.
if for antalope, elk in the more open woods. probly best to get a 4x16. unless you have great eyesight.

look to brands such as nikon,vortex,burris for great glass. bushnell 3200 series are pretty good, and leupold is good but you tend to pay for the name. burris and nikon are much cheaper, and generally have better glass at least IMO.

Right now, for my money the best scope out there is a Vortex. I put a 4-12 x 40 on my 06 and haven't looked back.

Leupold Vari X III 3.5 x 10 x 50mm, it is what I have on my X Bolt 308.

Depends on how much you want to spend.
I'd suggest a Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40,they're on sale for $399 at several places.For a hunting scope,Zeiss glass is about as good as it gets in that price range.

Seriously,Leatherwood scopes are pretty low quality optics.
I've looked thru the bottom of coke bottles that had clearer glass.

The new m1200 I have is not the top end for sure I agree but it is a nice piece. And for what it does it is on target no math
