I think that's part of what I love about it? It's built like a brick s#!* house. I think if I dropped my gun from a tree the scope would break the gun. That's what I want from a scope.

The Premier line of scopes from Swift Optics represents a good balance between quality and value. Give them a look.

budget would be nice to know. i have a cheapo mueller on my LR308 while i save for a good optic.

the SWFA line is really good. i have a SS 10x for my remington. their customer service is awesome too. i had a problem with the elevation turret on mine, so i sent it back and they replaced it for free with their newer 10x version with mil/mil turrets.

for my LR308, i've narrowed it down to 3 scopes:

SS 3-15x for $699: http://swfa.com/SWFA-SS-3-15x42-Tactical-Rifle-Scope-P62238.aspx

Weaver 3-1x for $760: http://swfa.com/Weaver-3-15x50-Tactical-30mm-Rifle-Scope-P55482.aspx

Burris 3-15x: http://swfa.com/Burris-3-15x50-XTR-II-34mm-Rifle-Scope-P68067.aspx


i want something with a lot of adjustment in it so i dont have to buy a canted scope base. the weaver has the most out of all of those if i remember right. i've narrowed it down to the weaver and SS scope, but i cant decide for sure yet.

Solid performers in a budget that I have found include Nikon in their Buckmaster line (very good glass, solid internals). Bushnell in their Elite Series. Redfield. I have not bought any of the Vortex optics, but several of my friends and relatives have them and swear by them.

Like Doc said, It's hard to beat the Nikon Buckmaster for the money. I have 1 on my LR308 and love it!

I've never understood the differences in scopes. I have an old Bushell 3x9 on my late 60s vintage Model 70 which is probably as old as the rifle and it is still crystal clear with no fogging. It has seen a lot of service over the years with my cousin hunting with it on horseback all through Montana, Oregon and Idaho.

I also have a fairly low end Redfield 2x7 (under $300) on another rifle and it too has clear as a bell optics. I also realize that I don't have the experience in long range scoped shooting as do most of you gents. Perhaps if I did the differences in a $300 scope and a $1000 one would be more apparent.

A couple of weeks ago while in Wisconsin I fired my friend's DPMS .308 and it was sweet. He had a Nikon scope on it that cost about a grand he said.

If he paid $1k for a Nikon scope, he really got screwed!
