Re: Advice on a Medium range scope
Nikon Buckmaster 4.5x14x40 with BDC, $306.00
I have one with a side focus and absolutely HATE the paralax (crosshairs wiggeling when I move my head) but the clarity is great. I would recomend getting the 4.5x14x40 with the A/O for fixing the paralax issues. for the price range you described its hard to beat.
If you can step up just a little bit in price, the Burris 4.5x14x42 P/A (paralax adjustable objective) with the B-PLEX. I swear on mine. I use it on my 270wsm with great results. Just dial the wind, and learn your poi vs what the stadia lines are set at. Mine is Very Very close. I would highly recomend this over the Nikon, for ruggedness, and 0 paralax issues, plus it has standard stadia lines, not those darn circles for hold points! (I hate those things).
