    Hello,

    I received a new rifle for Christmas and I need some advice on which scope to buy. I am looking for something up to $250. I know that is kinda cheap but I really don't want to spend much more than this on a groundhog gun. I have looked at the Leupold VX-1 and also Swift scopes. I was thinking 4-12x40, but maybe 6-18 in the Swift. The rifle is a 22-250 and like I said will be used for groundhogs mostly within 300yds. Thanks in advance for your responses.

    go to www.midwayusa.com and look at some of the scopes they have....it will be hard to find a Leupold or Burris for $250 in the target version you want.....

    Two other sources for you:

    Bear Basin
    S.W.F.A.

    But a used 8X fixed power scope could be just the ticket.

    I would find a reliable source and buy a used Leupold. Alternatively you can get a 3x9 40 Busnell elite for around 250. They are excellent scopes.

    Some stores are selling out their Leupolds at 20% off in anticipation of some models being discontinued. I think that you can get a Leupold 3X9 for around 270 new, if you found someone discounting them that would put one in your target range.

    I know that the Sportsmans Warehouse in Thornton Colorado is blowing theirs out at 20% off. Call em and see if they have somthing you can use.

    In the accessories market forum, Prof is selling a matte Leupold Vari II 3x9.
