BEST scope for around $200

What is the best scope for around $200 dollars for a 22-250 round being shot at 100-500 yards? also being used for target shooting and coyote hunting.

Re: BEST scope for around $200

This one gets pretty decent remarks from those who have used them and makes a good beginners scope. On sale at a good price. http://www.midwayusa.com/Promotion/d...tNum=101173356


Although I have not used them and do not coyote hunt.....others will have to chime in as to whether this will fit your needs completely.

Re: BEST scope for around $200

when i saw your post i thought of the same scope. had a guy at the range that just put one of these on his 243, was his first session with it at the range. he was asking me a bunch of questions i assumed because my equipement looked like i should know what i'm talking about. once sighted in i had him shoot 2 groups, 15 moa up and down between each shot. it passed with flying colors, both groups were the size he'd been shooting and a little more than 15" apart. i was very impressed with it's performance.

Re: BEST scope for around $200

a friend of mine has a 4-16x50 ao elite 4200 on his kimber 204 and it has been complete garbage but they may have got a little better. personally id check the nikon buckmaster 6-18x40 mildot sf that midway has on sale. i have one in bdc on my 22-250, they are 1/8" moa and i use the turrets instead of the bdc, after there set to 0 i have never had an issue with the scope not tracking back to its origin, just my .02

Re: BEST scope for around $200

I have not had any luck with scopes under $300.00 .

They have all failed one way or the other and at the worst time.

I would recommend starting with the Nikon Buck master and going up.

You don't have to go to a $1000.00 scope to get a good one but there is an apparent bottom
line and it appears to be $300.00 to get something that will work without failure.

Just my opinion.

Re: BEST scope for around $200

Here is a scope you may want to consider. Have a couple of this brand and it has very good glass and features such as side focus and pull up target type turrets. It is a discontinued model, but brand is owned by ATK, who also owns Weaver and it is basically same scope as a Weaver Grand Slam that sells for over $400, but can be bought in Nitrex by Weaver brand for around $217 after $100 rebate deducted and shipping added. Only complaint I've read about scope is it is on the heavy side....but as I wrote....its buyers have been very impressed with its optics.

Agreed. The Bushness 3200 10x is a great scope. Used one on my 308.
