    IMHO...The best scope under $500.00 is the 6.5-20 Nikon Monarch...$389.00...what I paid for mine..

    I will give you two concrete buys:

    Leupold VX-II 6x18x40 Target Matte Duplex A.O. $381.60

    Leupold Vari-X III 3.5x10X50 Matte Duplex $397.62

    Also, you can get excellent pricing on Leupold at this dealer, Ron Shirk Shooting Supplies (717)272-5671, they advertise in shotgun news All prices are cash, credit cards 2% surcharge (although illegal according to policy of credit companies but they still do it). plus shipping.

    I like the V24 on a med range varmit rig but it does not have much range of adjustment and is not great opticly for the long range work. Overall I think there are better scopes for the money.

    The Bausch & Lomb Elite, 6x to 24x seems to work real well for I think under $400.

    I'd second the Bushnell Elite 4200 series, opting for the 8-32X with tapered bases or the Burris Sig. rings and inserts. The Elite is $375-385 at Natchez Shooters Supply.
