    I'm getting ready to buy a new scope for a .300 Mag I just built and amconsidering the following mid-price scopes all with illuminated reticles:

    Burris Euro Diamond 2.5-10x50, 3-12x50
    Bushnell Elite 4200 2.5-10x50
    Meopta 2100 3-12x50

    My wants are from 10-14.5x magnification on the high end, illuminated reticle, max price of $650. Pricewise the Elite 4200 is the cheapest by $100, the Burris's both in the middle, and the Meopta the most expensive by $100, $200 over the 4200.

    I've been completely satisfied with my Burris FFII's in 3-9x40 so my fall back will be a FFII in 4.5-14. I'm thinking it might be worth the extra money though to get better glass in higher magnification scopes so would appreciate any input.

    I asked on another forum I frequent, but the responses were buy a S&B or Nightforce for $1k more, that won't happen, so if you have any experience with these particular scopes I'd really appreciate the feedback.
