I can't spend much on a scope right now, unfortunately. I just got a Rem 700 VS in .308.

I was thinking of the Bushnell Elite 3200 10x40 mildot. After doing some reading, I understand that 10x should be sufficient. I am mostly interested in 500-600 yard range in shooting and for deer hunting. I was looking at a 10x as from reading I have gathered that with variable power scopes that it can be difficult to maintain your zero, at least with lower end scopes.

As far as variable powers go I was looking at the Bushnell Elite 3200 3x9x40 or their Legend series or Banner series 6-18x50. I am hoping this would be a better way to go than Simmons or Tasco. Though, I was considering a Tasco 6-24x42 mildot.

I would seriously appreciate any opinions on these or other scopes. Thanks.

Unfortunately, only around $200 to spend at the moment, getting a new house so limited a bit.

I'm interested in the Mueller's. What you your recommendation be, the 4-16x50 Tactical Illuminated Mildot or the Eraticator 8.5-25x50 with the Illuminated Red dot?

Recommendations on rings and bases? A sight to check? I am assuming high rings for a 50mm objective? Thanks.

I bought the Mueller 4-16x50 mildot and got the sunshade as well.

Now, what rings and bases? I cannot afford the Leupold Mks. What about the Leupold QRW/PRW rings and bases?
