I'm going with a New England handi rifle for this coming season. I'm still unsure of the caliber and need help with the scope. I want to go with either a .30-06 or .25-06. I also want a very high powered scope, at least a 6x24x40mm but looking for something good but not cheap or not out of this world expensive. My budget is around $300 for the scope. Any help or opinions will be greatly appriecated? Thanks

Bushnell 3200 series;

But when you go to the higher powered glass, quality of the glass makes an even bigger difference (ie you will definetly notice poorer quality glass at higher powers than you would the difference in lower power glass)

Personally, if it were me, I'd pick up a lightly used leupy in 4.5-14x for around $400; The 14x will be more than enough for hunting with either of those calibers, and still be adequate for range work.

Here is a link to a nice scope that I currently have for sale on ebay. It really is a nice, clear scope.
