honestly try anything bushnell i think they are the best scop manufacturer out there.
He is asking about a scope around $150. You are talking about Leupold Zeiss and Swarorski. This never makes any since to me he is asking about a low cost scope and you are telling him to go out and spend $1000+ on a scope.It sounds like you have limited experience with the cheapest lines of bushnell like sportview, among their other junk. Now the Bushnell Elite 4200 series ARE good scopes, but their customer service SUCKS! Have you ever tried Leupold, Zeiss, or Swarorski?

For low cost scopes I would look at Mueller optics I know many guys that demand performance from there firearms and they have Mueller scopes on top of them.
Not everyone can drop $1000+ on a scope. Not everyone needs to spend that much money on a scope. If you are going to shoot the rifle 5 to 10 times a year with 70% of them on the range why do you need a Leupold scope?
look at the barska 2.5x10x56 from midwayusa for 90 bucks when you buy schmidt & bender zeiss swarski you are just paying for name withno more quality than the china scopes cause they are now made in china . Ive tried about every one on the market from most expenses to cheapest & now shoot leapers 2.5x10x56 Eurolux or barska.buy the 30mm tube though you wont believe the differwence in eye relief between 1 in & 30mm Ibought all the leapers i could find cause of law suit against them from carl ziess Now have 14 mounted & 7 barska euro 30s just my 2 cents & I do a lot of hunting & shooting
