I wouldn't go with a low end Bushnell, as they seem to develope problems.Hi all, Im on a budget
Which scope is the best quality and which one would you guys choose?
Keep in mind that the exit pupil of the scope is the objective/power. A young human eye can only dilate to 5mm and if you can remember when the cost of gas for your truck was just a passing thought when planning a hunting trip, it's likely your adult eye is closer to 4mm. Divide a 40mm objective by 9 power and you get 3.6mm. That's close enough. It makes no sense at all to get a larger objective than 40mm until you get into the 12 power, or higher, range.The scope will be going on a bolt action .308, i use this rifle specifically for pig shooting, i normally shoot pigs early morning, late afternoon and night, so the light is always low. I won't spend more than $250 on the scope.
