Cheap scope surprise

You know I had a Cheap $120 3x9x40 HAWKE mounted on my 300 wsm. Till I get enought $$ to get something highend. Haven't really shot it in yet,but wow! As far as brightness and clairity I cant tell the difrence to are vari X 3 Leupold 4.5x14x50. I did multipy side by sides during the day and at last minutes of light and the only diffrence between the 2 was about $400.

    I purchased a 1.5-6x40 Hwke Eclipse with the lighted reticle for short range stuff on my DPMS AP4 .308. I also must say that I too am impressed with the clarity and light transmission. I can not speak for windage and elevation as I have no plans for this being a long range rifle, but for the money, you can't go wrong.
