Default Good deal?

Im looking at replacing my BSA with some nicer glass. I found this and it looks like it has all the features Im looking for:

Millett Tactical Rifle scope FREE S&H BK81001, BK81003. Millett Riflescopes.

Does anyone have any experience with Millets? Or should I just pony up the dough to get a bush 4200?

I would go with one of the other offering at that price range.

Weaver, Burris, Nikon are better scopes in my eyes. If I were looking for something in the $350 price range. It will be hard pressed to beat the scopes below. I think overall my pick would be the sightron SII.

Weaver V-16 4-16 x 42 mm AO Matte Black Hunting Rifle-Scope FREE S&H 849408, 849409, 849410, 849407, 849414. Weaver Classic V-Series Riflescopes, Weaver Riflescopes.

Bushnell Elite 3200 4-12x40 Riflescope Matte 324124A 324120B Rifle scope FREE S&H 324120B, 324124A. Bushnell Elite 3200 Riflescopes, Bushnell Riflescopes.

Nikon Monarch 2.5-10x42 Riflescopes FREE S&H 8408, 8407, 8409, 8406, 8411. Nikon Monarch Riflescopes, Nikon Riflescopes.

Sightron SII 4-16x42mm Riflescopes SII416x42 Rifle scope FREE S&H SII416X42. Sightron Riflescopes.

What are you putting it on? Caliber? All the above are VG scopes.

You get what you pay for in optics..... generally. If the scope has a budget price, the optical quality of the glass suffers. The price of the scope will generally reflect how much the manufacturer had to pay for the optical glass. High quality optical glass is hard to beat, especially in low light conditions, extreme range, and when cranked up to the highest power the scope has in it's variable range. It's all about clarity and resolution.

For a speed demon like the 22-250, higher power may be in order. I put a Bushnell 4-12 on my CZ 527V .223. What I found is it was not enough for 300 yard shots on small vermin. I changed to a Sightron SII 6.5-20x42mmAO. It makes all the difference in the world. It made it easier to find and dispatch woodchucks at 300+ yards. All that shows in the fields is their heads when the hay is high. Great for Coyotes and fox at distance also.

I know that Millet manufactures fine rings and bases but not quite sure if they manufacture their scopes. I'd do a little research as to who manufactures the scopes for Millet.

Redfield is back in business, being built in Oregon. A good 3x9x40 runs $150. Great optics.

Those look nice, but I'm looking for something with a min 16x magnification.

Those Sightrons look nice too, but for what I'd pay, I might as well get the 4200 I was looking at.
