    Best scope

    What would be my best choice for a 3-9x40 scope without adjustable parallax for the 200 mark for bush gun
    Cheers!

    These are very good and I would rate them better than a VX1, wish I didn't sell mine now.

    if your talking around $200.00 budget ive used nikko stirling and bushnell in my opinion based on my experience with hunting and some casual target/practice shooting ive got nikko stirlings on most of my rifles i got them because they are cheap and in my experience havnt had one problem with them i bought them as starter scopes with the intention of upgrading them as needed but they have been reliable and since ive had no problems whatsoever havnt even up graded them the oldest one has been on the same rifle for at least 15 years ive got 6 nikkos also got weaver arctic fox which id never heard of its been good as well bushnells simmons tasco and rws you wont win any bragging competitions with them they just do the job thats my experience with them any way

    Yeah me too. Put me on the contacts list. I see the OP got the same responses over @ tother pub. Posted his budget and immediately got suggestion of 500 scopes (vx1). You guys are as bad as car sharks and unreal estate agents tell them a number and immediately they show you everything much more expensive. Although asking for a best scope at 200 is a bit of an oxymoral as pointed out by a few.
