Which Scope for .300win mag?

Any suggestions or opinions would be appreaciated. I need a long range scope for where I am deer hunting, 6.5-20 or 6-24.

    6.5-20 because Leupold doesn't make a 6-24. The Burris 6-24 has less MOA.
    Midway has it on sale http://www.midwayusa.com/rewriteaproduct/611209

    I'm a huge fan of the Leupold M1. That's a smoking price at midway. I'd jump on it.

    I prefer the Zeiss Conquest to Leuy however that deal on the Mark 4 at Midway is the best, on that scope, I've ever seen. Leupold seems to be the standard that everything else is measured by.

    If you are willing to pay a hefty price say
    somewhere between 1100 to 1500 dollars
    Swarovsky is a good choice as well as Zeiss,
    but if you want something a little tamer on
    the price Leupold would be my choice. I us
    one on top of my 300 win mag in the VXIII,
    not as high powered as you want but it does
    a fine job out to 600 yards.

    300mag,
    I love shooting my 300W.M. at long range and I love high powered scopes ,but for a deer hunting gun my favorite is a 4.5x14 ,the higher powered scopes are not as versatile for big game IMHO
