    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

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