time for new scope, need your advice

First off i want to say hello , just joined site. I have a model 70 7mm WSM and i am having a huge problem with the scope im using now. The recoil is hard so it is a %@#$ to keep it sited in. Im using a BSA right now so i know that is one of my problems. But im looking for a scope that can withstand the recoil so i dont have to worry about resiting it all the time. The shots i take are not very far prolly max of 600 yds, and i would be using it for deer hunting. Im looking at a price range of probably around $250-$300. any advice would be great.

    I have two suggestions - save up a little more money and buy a better scope than what you are budgeting for - look at Nikon Monarchs, Bushnell 4200's and mid-priced Leupolds. You will not regret purchasing a better quality scope, it will last forever and will give you much better service.

    Second - DO NOT BUY A SCOPE FROM DAVE KING [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
    - he is manufacturing some pretty exotic stuff but it is not for the average inhabitant of this planet [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Ian, you mentioned the 4200's, I would also mention the 3200's in a 5-15, it is a little less expensive than the 4200's and I have had great luck with mine on a 7 mag. I would have to agree with the comment on saving up and buying good optics, your gun is only as good as the scope.

    cstryker02:

    Did you happen to go on a hunt down in Reagan County a couple of weeks ago?

    You sound just like a guy I hunted with.

    I love Leupold's and have them on all of my rifles, but I'm about to "test-drive" a Sightron.
