I've owned Weaver, Baush & Lomb, Simmons (Atec), Leupold, and Bushnell.
On my centerfires I have been changing over-slowly- to Bushnell 3200s.
On an elk hunt I found myself in a blizzard for 2 days on a 5 day hunt and when I crawled into a herd of elk the snow was blocking the scope as quick as I could wipe it off. I appreciate Bushnell's "rain guard".
Why the 3200 and not the 4200 series? Because head to head or side by side, the 3200 3X9 40mm appeared much brighter. I compared the two at both Cabelas and Gander Mountain.
The 40 mm allows the use of medium height mounts so I get good "cheek weld".
Going to Natchez or Optics Planet I've been paying very close to $200. ( I couldn't believe what a friend paid for his Swar-something.) If the bottom line is what the groups look like- there is no difference between the two scopes. Yes, his is sharper but---. My .300 Win, .270, and Ranch Rifle have gone to Bushnell.

Over the years, I've owned several different optics, from different mfgrs'. In the past, Barska has been a known maker of pure junk. Low price and even lower quality. Lately, a couple rags have had decent write-ups on a couple of their rifle-scopes. I had to do an emergency purchase on a spotting scope. I got on of their scope/soft and hard case deals. It has been working pretty good. Dropped twice off the table, and blown over twice. It's been2-3 years, and it still works like new. Take your chance.

I TRIED to read all these posts, but got a little lost. I knew I had relegated myself to being the "poor preacher type" years ago but I seem to get poorer everytime I realize what it takes to do a little shootin'.
Army vet, and lifelong shooter (by my definition). I don't own any "expensive" guns. This is my first year deer hunting and I dropped 6... all in the 60-120 yd range... .308 and 30-06... 1 shot and no more than 5 feet from where I shot them. My eyes are fading a bit. I say all that to say this:
I have 3 Center Point 4-16x40 scopes (my 2 deer guns and my 917 Marlin) and I paid about $75 including tax for them. I shoot wonderful groups (considering "cheap" guns) with them - sub 2" groups at 100-150 yds... most of the time.
I'm not sure that if I spent MORE money, I could do (practically) any better... but then I've never had "more money", so I can't say for sure.
