Although it is currently sitting on a shelf unused, I have a Bushnell Elite 3200 (3-9x40, multi-x reticle) that for quite a few years sat atop my Ruger M77 mk II Compact rifle in 7-08 Rem. This rifle is my primary hunting rifle for backcountry backpacking hunts. That scope has seen some truly terrible weather and has been beaten about quite a bit. It has never bobbled. Image quality is excellent, ensuring I could see well before and after legal hunting hours. These scopes currently sell for right around $200. I highly recommend them for anyone on a restrictive budget.
For every day shooting or just hunting , I usually buy a scope in the 150.00 range. For my purpose I don't need anything better then that. I don't expect them to last forever but heck I still have all my cheapy scopes I ever bought still mounted on the original gun I bought it for. But if I could afford a better scope I'm not so sure I would. Usually I buy Bushnells.
