Re: want to buy a rifle scope help.

Vortex are generally pretty well thought of, no personal experience with one though.
Bushnell Elite 4200 seem to get pretty good reviews as well.
I just bought one and have only played with it a little bit, so I can't tell you a whole lot about it. The clicks seem repeatable so far, but the glass is a far cry from the zeiss that I have. Still good quality, but not in the optics are not in the same class IMO.

I read good things about the Sightron SIII. It will not be a Nightforce, but is decent. Do you have weight restrictions or anything?

Trijicon
Vortex
Nikon

Hard to beat Nightforce 5.5-22 , worth the extra cost. S and Bender a step up but see debate about sfp vs ffp.
