For my 300 WSM
Win Featherweight rifle weight was a major factor when it came to the scope. I settled with the Burris 4.5-14X32mm Short mag scope with Ballistic Plex reticle. At 15 oz and $332 at SWFA it a great scope. It's 11.3 inches long has great optics, very good light transmission.
I liked mine enough that I put one on my sons Fetherweight .243 and we'll be putting another on my other son's .243 featherweight.
Optics are as good as Leupold.
Hope it helps
