Take a look at the Weaver Grand Slam Tactical 3-10x40. It is a Midway exclusive and they are on sale for $300.00 untill the 31st of October. I just recieved one for a rifle that I am putting together for my brother and may order another after looking at this one. Optics are clear with good eye relief and it does well in low light. The only thing that you may not like is the adjustments which are mil/mil. I personally like mil/mil as I have an easier time remembering my dope and the reticle and turret adjustments correspond. Just a thought.

This may be more magnification than your after but if Cameraland is still selling the vortex viper 6.5-20x44 for $259 that would be tough to beat. I paid $400 for mine and still feel I got a lot of scope for the cash.

If you have your heart set on a variable - you have a lot of choices. I have a .223 that I put a straight 10X super sniper on that I bought used from this forum and since using it for 2 years I have ordered another one. They trac, have adequate optics and are tougher than you should treat a scope.

I know that SWFA is the distributor for them and for my 223 I don't need a variable when I only use it out to 600 yds.
