Re: Decent scope under $300

Whatever you do don't buy a centerpoint, every time I go hunting I have to rezero mine.

    Ummmmmmmm I see a cheap tasco, bushnell or simmons in your future. Seriously you should maybe look into something else. I would hate to have to re-zero everytime I went out.

    sixgun,
    I just bought a Nikon Buckmaster 6-18x40 and I am impressed to say the least. I tried it out at 560yds on my 112BVSS in .300WM and it tracks great. I ran it up 7MOA (300yd zero), back .5MOA and put 3 180gn Ballistic Tips in 3.6". Not too shabby for a $300.00 scope and a $500.00 used rifle. I actually like it better than my Leupold Vari-X III that I have on my 700P in 7mmRM. It's a 4.5-14X40 and has heavy duplex. JohnnyK.

    I have the 6-18X40 Buckmaster on my 300 wsm. It has the target dot. I like the turrrets on it as well. Nice little scopes.

    Have you maxed out the Elevation yet? Just wondering how far it will shoot.
