    WTB Entry level scope

    I've been borrowing a mate's scope to get me going and its about time I gave it back. Just wondering what's out there around the 250 mark? Was thinking bushnell elite or maybe VX1. 3-9x40 is probably all the budget will buy but if there's something with bigger magnification that would be great. Needs to be 25mm tube unless you have spare rings to suit a tikka too. I'm open to spending a bit more if you're not in a hurry to get rid of it. I'm in no hurry to buy so can save up for something if there's a sweet deal going

    Or a Nikon monarch, will have better glass than them, can normally find them around a similar price on tm.

    At that price band, Sightron S1 might be worth a look. I have seen a few and I have been impressed. Dead eye dick in Levin has them. And I have had a great run out of my Nikko Nighteater. Less popular brands but both represent good value for what you get.

    Look at Burris Fullfield IIs, fantastic scopes for the money.
