    $200-$500 3-9x40 scope

    Hi team,

    After reshuffling my setups I now have a naked 223 for carrying around shooting goats.
    Looking for a general purpose 3-9x40 scope or similar .
    Minimum Leupold VX1 optical quality preferred.
    Low profile caps and simple reticle preferred.

    Budget is $200-$500. Can go slightly lower or higher for the right deal.

    Thanks very much

    I have a Redfield 3-9x50 with a "Accurange reticle" (google it) thats not bad glass (maybe just a wee bit better than VX1 to my eye) $170 posted.

    Thanks bro, I'll take that. Just emailed you.

    Really appreciate all the posts and PMs. Had some offers for quality scopes at bargain prices.
