Re: Decent scope under $300
I know with my 4.5-14 x 40 I can out spin the Bushnell Elite 4200 1MOA. I get 43.5MOA using a 20MOA base and shooting 168 A-Max's around 2760 fps. That gets me to 1100yrds at ground hogs. Not so accurate because of the load and ammo, but gets us dog gone close. Scared the little boogers to death anyway.
