    ...specifically the Buck Commander 4-16x42mm model.

    A buddy of mine is looking for a scope with the following features...4-16x variable, over 40mm objective...but not a 50mm, and a BDC reticle.

    The scope is for a 7mmWSM (older M70 Ultimate Shadow)...the rifle WILL see 400 yard shots, 300 yards being the usual though.

    This guy is on a strict budget (disabled)...$300 is his spending limit.


    He asked me to help him look for a scope and I have been...I keep coming back the scope mentioned above (within the price range)

    Opinions?
    Experiences?
    Other good scopes in the price range?

    Done tried to sell him that one (and the similar Nikon Buckmasters)...he wants 16x though.

    I don't have the specific model you are talking about, but do have a 4-10x44 on my .308 and a fixed 4x handgun scope on my T/C Contender in .30-30. They are both fabulous scopes and I wouldn't hesitate getting another.

    Explain to him it's not the power of the scope, but the quality of the optics.

    Had a shooting partner that used a Tasco 6x24 scope, he could not see the same details I could with my Leupold 12x varment model.
