I am getting a new deer rifle and I want info on the scope for it. The gun is a Tikka T3 lite stainless in a 270 WSM. I don't have much experience with scopes so I need help. I want the power to be no less than 12 and adjustable. Any objective 40mm and bigger will do. 1/8 inch adjustments would be nice but I can do with 1/4. I would like the finish to be stainless to match the gun and my price range is $150 and under. Any advice, suggestions, or experience would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
~TJ

Under a 150 dollars is a real poke in the wind. That rifle should have atleast a 300 dollar scope or more .

This maybe your best buy for your price range.

IMHO there is no difference in glass between a $300 and a $150 scope .
Heres where I would go http://www.opticsplanet.com/vortex-crossfire-ii-3-9x50mm-rifle-scope.html Free shipping with the FREESHP coupon code , unconditional lifetime warranty for any owner not just the original owner . No receipts needed for warranty work and they have great customer service . Nice clear glass and far better than the cheap $150 scopes that Bushnell, Tasco and Nikon put out

I would recommend checking out your local sporting goods stores and see if they have any used scopes from guns they've taken in on trade. Sometimes you can find some killer deals on used scopes. Stainless are a bit harder to find though.
