    I'm looking for a scope with a reticle that has yardage and windage marks on it. And I'm looking to spend under $300. Can you help me out?

    SWFA.com carries a lot of makes and models of scope sights and they illustrate the reticle s of most.
    Good shopping.

    If you have a leupold laying around, I had The factory replace a duplex with a varmint reticle on a vari-III. It has graduation marks and windage marks. I think it ran $150 or so with shipping, took two weeks exactly.

    Yardage marks? As in 100 yds, 200 yds, 300 yds, etc.? There are optics with bullet drop compensator (BDC) markings on them but they are only accurate for a specific bullet weight, velocity, BC, etc.

    In your price range I would suggest the Burris Fullfield E1. The reticle is not caliber specific, but it comes with instructions as to what cartridge, bullet weight and velocity , and zero ranges fit it the closest. You would have to take it to the range and find out where you hitting at each range and which hash mark to use but it's pretty simple to do. I have the 2-7X35 on my rifle, and it is nice for the price.

    And yardage marks inside a scope are pretty useless if you don't know the exact range to the target you are shooting at.

    Most folks are very poor at estimating range on a good day in known terrain.
    Throw in bad weather and unknown land and all your guesses are way off!

    For that, an electronic range finder is more valuable then all the fancy scope reticule schemes thus far invented.

    Bigdipper;

    Find a scope with a mil-dot reticle within your budget, there are several on the market. Bushnell makes a fixed 10X Elite, Hawke makes at least two variables, and there are others.
