300 WSM scope suggestions

Well, I bought a 300 wsm today. I had plans to purchase a burris fulfield II E1 with ballistic plex. However they discontinued the scope I was looking for. Anyone have any suggestions for long range scopes with something similiar to ballistics plex. I am hoping for something that has up to a 18 or 20 power. Somewhere in the 300-500 dollar range. Thanks guys

Re: 300 WSM scope suggestions

Depends upon what you want to spend.

The present Millet scopes are made by Bushnell. their tactical scope is pretty good. I have one on my 400 yard shooter.

Re: 300 WSM scope suggestions

I have a vx-3 6-20x 40mm on my groundhog gun, wooks good out to abought600 yards then, it is luck for me.

Should mention that, as you go up in the magnification much better glass is required. Many of the cheaper 18 or 20x scopes are really not as good as 9x leupold be cause they lack clarity at long range. Besure to look thru wht you buy. I know folks want to buy of the internet to get the best price, but scopes really should be 'tested' first to see if it is what you want.

I HAVE HAD TWO NIKON BUCKMASTERS 4.5X14X40 AND A 6X18X40 AND THEY WERE BOTH EXCELLENT. NATCHEZ HAD THEM FOR 209, THEY WERE REFURBS BUT I COULD NOT FIND ANYTHING WRONG WITH THEM. JMO

Re: 300 WSM scope suggestions

A good ole' standard 3x9 Leupold will last you a lifetime, I've owned at least 10 of them and have never had a failure and they are a bright as they were and some of them are 30+ years old...get the vari-x -1..for $249.00 it's hard to beat and will stand the test of time.
