Best Scope for the money

I'm getting a new rifle. I'm going to pick up my Winchester model 70 on Friday, I've always hunted with leupold's. What do you think is the best "bang for your buck" scope out there. I would love to spend under 150 if possible. I understand that 95% of the time you get what you pay for, but are there any reasonably priced very good scopes out there?

The scope makes the rifle. Limiting yourself to $150 is not going to get you much scope at all.

Nikon Buckmasters is a decent scope for the money, if you have a limited budget.

i've heard/read good things about redfield scopes. if i remember correctly they are made on the same manufacturing line as the leupolds. nikon's aren't horrible either if you don't know any better.

This is one hell of a scope but I believe it is out of his price range.

I recommend Redfield Revolution and Revenge scopes. They're made by Leupold now so they carry the same lifetime warranty.

A few years ago I bought one of these in 3-9X for my son at the BPS "Black Friday Sale." Actually, my wife got to the store very early, about the same time I was leaving to go deer hunting! I think it was only $129. It's a very clear scope that I can recommend.

You can probably save some money buying a 3-9X scope instead of a higher magnification scope. Getting a factory refurbished scope will also save considerable $$$. I've bought a number of factory refurb Nikon's from here LINK . Looks like they're out of the models in your price range at this time, but maybe you can find some elsewhere.

I have two of em right now and I'm really impressed by them for the price. It's no VXIII but I find it to be significantly better than other scopes I own in that same price range.

There's also that GREAT leupold warranty

The Redfields are getting pretty good reviews. They have a $30 rebate going on now. I'm picking one up today at lunch for my 45/70. POS Bushnell will not hold a group after 3 years on it.

Weaver Grand Slam series. Brighter than my monarch and you may can find a 50mm on eBay. Love these scopes. Very clear and hold light like a boss.

Whoops, forgot about the Redfield's. My son in law has bought a couple and really likes them.

I'll also throw out a brand that's not yet been mentioned, Nitrex. I bought a Nitrex TR-1 summer '11 for a varmint gun and have been VERY impressed. Would've bought another, but they were being discontinued. This is just one of many models available at Natchez Shooter's Supply.

To get one, you may have to act quick before they're gone.
