I have been trying to research all i can since i need a new scope for my Savage .243. I will be shooting up to 500 yards most of the time maybe push it when i get better. But i cannot decide on what scope to get, i want a mil dot reticle, and turret adjustments, something from 3 or 4 to 10-16 power. I want to get something that will have repeatable adjustments and not cost over 300 or 350 because im poor, but i dont want to end up with junk! Should i avoid Mueller, Swift, Hawke, and BSA? Also the mil dot might be able to be forgotten if everything else suits me.... Thanks in advance any advice will be appreciated!
