Scope

Looking into getting a scope for my XL7C 25-06. I put a cheap $40 Tasco on it because it was there and I'm getting about 2 1/2" groups. I don't want a $300 scope. I have a $125 6-24x Tasco on my 220 swift and it is awsome, very clear and shoots dime size groups. I have a Bushnell on my 300 win mag and even though it shoots good groups, it is VERY unclear and you need both hands to change the power. I'm thinking about finding a used Bushnell Elite 3200. I'm seeing them on E-bay for the $150 range.

Re: Scope

Check out the new Redfields. Hard to beat the price and clarity.

STOP monkeying around..save the extra $100.00 and get yourself a Leupold 3x9..buy it one time and your set for life...clear, sharpe and rugged...settle this yourself..

Re: Scope

nothing at all wrong with the elite 3200's. Good glass at a good price. The new Redfields are definitely worth a look as well as the Nikon Prostaffs. All three are in the $150-$200 range.

Definitely change scopes, if you're getting 2 1/2" groups to check and see if it's a scope problem, if not, try different ammo.

Re: Scope

I know, I know. The thing is I've used several Leupolds and I'm just NOT that impressed for the price difference. I think an Elite is every bit as clear. I just wanted some other opinions from people that don't buy into the "you get what you pay for" theory.

There's two definitions of cheap.
one is cheap and the other is "less expensive".

Re: Scope

I checked out the Redfields but got a Nikon for $10 less. Both were clear and sharp and have a lifetime warranty.
