Well, I got a few in mind and wondering if anyone has any of them and what you guys would go with.

Usage is for shooting steel @80-150 yards

Bushnell TRS-25
Bushnell 1-4-24 PCL with throwdown
Vortex Strikefire
Vortex spitfire
Cabelas x3
Burris prism
Primary arms classic 30mm

also, any other suggestions

I have the TRS25 and the Vortex Strikefire. Both good but you are looking at 3moa and 4moa dots. The Strikefire is bigger and might be a little quicker. I have a Bushnell Trophy XLT 1-4x24 with a #4 reticle and a 1moa illuminated dot. For 50-100 yards the dots are ok but the scope comes in at longer distances. I cant comment on the others.

Ya, leaning towards a 1-4-24. Primary arms has some nice options.

Here's a link to a Burris scope but I just got today it's a good deal.

I also have a primary arms 1 to 6 X and it's a very nice scope. With the rebate the Burress is a heck of a deal I don't think you could go wrong for 159 bucks it's very nice.

Have both the TRS-25 and the StrikeFire. They both work great and affordable.
I'd get the StrikeFire as it's only lil bit more expensive than the TRS-25.

I just got a Nikon 2-7x32BDC200. It is a shotgun scope with 75 yard parallax. I got it for $128 at optics planet. They have the same scope with 100 yard parallax for a good price. For your intended use the shotgun scope would be perfect.

I've had multiple Vortex (Strikefire and Sparc) as well as a Bushnell TRS-25. These are excellent RD scopes for the money. I'd endorse all three.

But if you can get a Burris Prism for under $200 (after rebate), that's going to be the best deal out there if it suits your tastes. This is a $350 scope. A couple of my friends have them, and they're crystal clear. It's an excellent optic if fixed 3X magnification works for you.
