Nothing but Bushnell scopes for these eyes. Many other quality optics out there though. I have yet to see anyone beat scope prices in opticszone.

- Nikon Prostaff 3x9x40 BDC reticle at Opticszone is $129 with free shipping.

- Same scope at SWFA is $159 without shipping.
- Same scope except with Nicoplex reticle at Walmart is $159

Bushnel, Simmons, Tasco, Barska red dot, Nikon, leupold & Burris, and I'm sure i'm missing a few other brands that I've used.
I agree with you "on_the_fly" nikon is an awesome scope BUT If money were no object
there are several scopes in the Trijicon Scope line that I'd like to own.

Now if I could have only one scope and price doesn't matter, Swarovski wins hands down. I have not seen better optics anywhere, their quality is simply outstanding. Does anyone know who makes Weatherby supreme scopes? They seem to be of pretty good quality but i don't know who makes them? The rifles came with the 3X9X44 scopes as a package. I would appreciate any info you might have. Thanks HM

Leupold also, a VX11 and I love it. Clarity is soooo much sharper than my old Swift.
