    I purchased a Remington 700 SPS Varmint a couple days ago in .243. I have been looking for the right scope for 3 days now and havent been able to make my mind up on anything. I was hoping you guys could point me in the right direction for getting a quality scope for this rifle for around 300.00. I would like something around 4x16x50. The brands I have been looking at is Nikko Sterling, Millet and Mueller but Im just conserned with the quality of these scopes beacause of there low price.

    Has anyone had experiece with scopes from these companies?

    What would you suggest for a scope in the 300 dollar range for this rifle?

    Thanks alot,
    Ryan

    Rmitch223,
    Check out the Nikon BuckMaster 6-18X40 with Mil-Dot reticle and side focus. Midway has them on sale as we speak for about $300.00. Great scope for the money. I have one on a .300WinMag and it is holding up great. Glass is clear and internals are precise and right on. I have shot it accurately out to 650yds with no problems at all. I have confidence it would take me further but I run out of land! JohnnyK.

    Thanks for the advice. I ended up getting a Nikon Monarch 4x46x42sf with Warne Bases and Rings.
