    I'm getting an E.R. Shaw Mark VII chambered in .250 Savage. Expect delivery in late spring or early summer. Am thinking about glass. This is not for long range hunting or shooting. I'll use it for deer hunting (expect most shots less than 200 yards) and shooting paper.

    Don't want a big, heavy scope. Feel 3-9 magnification would do just fine. Don't need tactical turrets, fancy reticles, or 30mm tube. Would like to keep it around 12" long (or shorter).

    Was considering some of the following models:

    Vortex Viper 3-9 X 40
    Burris Fullfield II 3-9 X 40
    Trijicon Accupoint 3-9 X 40

    Doesn't have to be 3-9 power. Would also consider 2-7 or 2.5-8.

    The Accupoint retails for around $600. Really don't want to go any higher than that.

    I've already got a Nikon Monarch 3-9 X 40, so I'd like to get something different.

    Just wanted to pick folks' brains if they have any experience with the above scopes, or have any other suggestions. I guess, Zeiss' 3-9 conquest would also fall in my price range.
