I have a Leupold VX-III on my .300 Win mag, great glass and it is sighted in 2" high at 100 yards. Will hit them out to 300 yards with no holdover.

You can't go wrong with a leupold 3x9. I have one on my .300 and it works well.

+1 The new Redfields are very nice. I bought one-hands down best glass for anything in the 300 price range...only they are half that!

I just bought 2 new scopes, a Leupold and a Redfield. Cant tell much difference between to 2 scopes. The only one I could find was about $150.00 in the price. Dont be afraid to buy a Redfield, they are well worth the cheaper price!!

I have quite a few Leupold scopes....but my favorite is a 4-12 VII with a fine duplex.

A good ole' standard Leupold 3 x 9 is all that you'll ever need for big game hunting at reasonable ranges..out to 500 yards....buy one, it'll last a lifetime and is back-upped with quick service if ever needed..I owned at least 10, how many have ever had a problem, zero...good enough for me..

Whatever one you buy, get a 50 mm lens.
