Rifle Scope

Ok so deer season is getting closer and i'm going to buy a new scope this year because the one I have is rather old.

What I'm looking for:

- 3-9 x40
- Keep it under $200
- Matte finish
- Brand is not important. Just dont want any junk.

Any help are appreciated. This is going on a .270 by the way.

04 WJ Limited Black, 5.5" LA hybrid (IRO Trackbar, Teraflex Springs, Bilstein 5100/5125 Shocks, IRO Critical Path High Clearance LA's + KOR 3/4" spacers, JKS Disconnects) 32" Firestone Destination M/T's, JCR Stage 3 Sliders, Black Moabs, Muffler Delete, Hella 700ff's, Yakima Load Warrior

Phil:4:13: I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

You can get a Leupold 3-9x40 for right around $200, there's no reason to entertain other options.

Yeah, they really don't get much better than Leupold. You can save some money by going with a Nikon, which is still a high quality piece, but it might as well be a Tasco next to a Leupold. VX-1 would fit your requirements.

If you're near a Cabela's or a Gander Mountain, you could go compare it side by side with a Nikon Buckmaster. Granted you won't be able to really judge the parallax in a low light, close environment, but at least it'll be better than blindly ordering off the internet without ever having seen the scope.

I have a Bushnell 3x9 on my 30-06, never had any problems with it. Whenever I do upgrade it'll be to a Leupold tho.

Leupold is the best one really, I liked it from the first time I used it.

Leupold x2. However if you are into reloading I also have a Nikon with a BDC as well. Using their spot-on calculator I am able to tailor my hand loads to the scope. Pretty slick system.
