Scope for a .243

Postby asmythe32 » Sun Jan 20, 2013 12:11 am

I was looking at the simmons Prosport in 3-9x50. Anyone have any suggestions. I am looking for a decent scope for 150 or under if I can help it. Would like to get a good scope under 100 if I can find it. Buddy has a simmons and says he loves it. Any oppinions?

Right around 130 is the Mueller APV.

Try the Nikon Pro staff 3x9 40 mm scope. Around the 150 or under mark. Quality optics at a great price. You will be pleased with the clarity and brightness. :bow: :thumbsup:

I have a 4 x32 simmons on a .22 and it's considerably brighter than the 4-16 prostaff Nikon.

Just sayin'.

I second the Nikon. Leupold is my favorite tho.

I just put this scope on my .223 and love it. I have two Simmons scope and flat dig them.

They also have the screw in 4" sunshade for it. My Axis looks badazz with it and it is awesome scope for the money.

Bushnell banner dusk to dawn. I have 6 on my single shots H&R and muzzleloader and slug guns. Never a issue. My rifles get better windows.

Nikon but Leupold is best. The better you can see , the better you can shoot. Don't go cheap on optics.

spend $200, and get a vortex scope your love it. Best scope hands down, with a lifetime warranty. I can't believe know one recommended it yet. They have some of the best glass for the money.
