    Why didn't the Bushnell work?

    What about the 3200 5-15x40 tactical?

    Nikon makes a nice scope called the buckmasters in 4.5x14x40 and the 6x18x40 ,both
    have side focus and the mill dot retical.

    The first one is under $300.oo and the second is just over $350.oo.

    Both are very clear and the 18 power has target turrents.

    I am a big fan of sightron.....a SII would be a touch more 400 range but a few extra dollars on a scope will go a long way to getting hits, think of it as saving ammo

    +1 on that. I have the Nikon Buckmaster 6x18x40 mild dot on my 25-06 and it does a great job for the price. Midway puts them on sale for $299 everyonce in a while. Mine tracks and holds zero great.

    +1 I used to own a nikon buckmaster 6-18 fine plex and sold it with a rifle. It was used out to 1000 yards with the help of a 20MOA rail.

    Last friday afternoon I was at the range using my 4.5-14x nikon buckmaster mil-dot and shot out to 1000 yards with it.

    I can't complain about the nikon buckmasters I've had at all. $300 isn't cheap, and it isn't expensive. I also took my 4.5-14x buckmaster hunting last year and ended up getting a little "turned around" in the woods. I took some nasty spills stepping into knee and hip deep holes that couldn't be seen and the rifle & scope got slammed hard several times. Never fired a shot on that hunting trip, but when I got home I took it to the range it held it's zero after some real world abuse. It's a good solid scope and I feel like I can trust my life with it.
