    My last new rifle was a Model 7 Rem. I ended up putting a Weaver Grand Slam on it. Although, I love that scope almost as much as I do the gun, I'm looking for something different on my new gun. The new gun will be a Tikka T3 .243. Any scope recommendations on what you've had personal experience with? Give me the good and bad. I'll be looking in the 200-400 dollar range. Thanks.

    Zeiss Conquest 3x9x40 for $399 pretty much everywhere.

    I have a Leupold Vari X II 3X-9 X40 on my Remington 700 7mm. Paid $230.00 for it. I am very happy with it.

    I've used Leupold's almost exclusively and for good reason. They have the best optics for their price range, they're waterproof, durable, and have a lifetime warranty.

    I really like the Nikon Monarch series scope. Very good optics and a good value. I also have several Leupold scopes. Either one would be a good choice. You can pick them up from riflescopes.com for the best price.

    I've been pleased with a Nikon Monarch 3X9, and you can buy one most places for $299. Last year, I found a post-season sale on a Leupold Vari-X III 2.5X8X36, and picked it up for $389 including tax, and it's a much better scope IMHO. You can mail order the same scope from Cabela's for $439 with free shipping, but that would be cheating on your upper limit. I also hunted for a number of years with an old Vari X II 1X4X20, and had no complaints with that one, either. You can get new Vari-X II's for $250ish.

    My experience with other brands of scopes is rather limited, though.
