I posted this over on the savage forum but I am looking for as many opinions as I can get befor spending a bunch of bucks. I am building a LR savage rifle. Actually I will probably buy one from one of the forum members, and go from there. I have abut $500 to spend on a scope and have located these three- Bushnell Elite 4200 6x24- $629 SWFA SS 20 x 42 fixed- $280 Vortex Viper 6.5 x 20- $450 after rebate I have read a lot of good reviews of the SWFA SS, but am also a firm believer in " you get what you pay for " Something I dont understand is that the fixed prices are in general a lot higher than the variables? I am a little leery of the SS fixed 20 because I will be doing some hog hunting that could be as close as 100 yds or even less. The Bushnell is a bit out of budget, but I would go there if there is a big upgrade from the others. They all seem to have enough MOA adjustment to get me to 1k once I start shooting that distance.
