    I am looking for a scope for my sons 243. This will be for pig and deer hunting as well as targets out to 500. These are the 3 I am looking at

    Weaver 3-15x50 tactical
    Burris 3-12x50 e1 reticle
    Steiner 4-16x50
    Zeiss conquest


    I definitely want to keep my purchase under a grand. I really like the steiners feel. The Burris has not been in production for quite sometime so finding one may be difficult. I like what I've read about the weaver but unfortunately, they are not on the shelf to inspect.
    Simple ranging reticle

    Requirements:
    Decent glass (better than vx111)
    Very forgiving eye box
    Illumination would be great for late night pig hunting
