My father just bought himself a pretty sweet baretta bolt action rifle in .270 winchester. I'd like to find a scope thats under $200 ($150 if possible) that will hold zero very well and look decent of the rifle. It does not need a lot of fancy bells and whistles. He will never shoot it beyond 100 yards. Baretta guarantees this rifle to have 1" groups at 100 yards with any commercial ammo. I just want a scope that will help my dad live up to the manufacturer's guarantee basically. The rifle came with 1" rings so 1" tubed scopes would be really nice. Any suggestions?

Thanks All!

Burris Fullfield II. You should be able to get one shipped to your door for about $200.

Very good scope for the money, I put a FFII 3-9x40 ballistic plex for under $200 from these guys www.riflescopes.com. stay away from Simmons unless you want to stick it on a .22 RF.

I'd say the Burris Fullfield II or Weaver V9........

I bought a $100 Simmons for my 30-30...piece of junk. I sent it back and bought the Weaver V9.

Or...I would try to find a used Leupold VXII....you should be able to get one for that kind of money. And they have a lifetime guarantee...it you ever have a problem, you just send it in.

+ 1 on the burris, that being said i have had a bushnell banner 3x9 on my .300 win mag and it has held zero for about a decade works good out to about 200-300 yards

Mine is a off brand (Hammers) but it works fabulously. 3-9x44. Fully coated, fog/water resistant. $50.

Burris and Leupold makes models under $200 and will take anything thrown at it. If you want cheaper, I've heard good things about Sightrons SI's.
Did your Dad get a "Baretta" or a Tikka?

So after reading calguns.net on scopes, I may purchase the Burris Fullfield II Scope 3-9x40 with Ballistic Plex rather than a Leupold. Any last minute suggestions/comments before I make my purchase?

Here's another thing to consider, The Leupold VX-I windage and elevation adjustments are tension adjustments and not 1/4" clicks. I was going to purchase the Leupold but This idea really turned me off. I instead purchased the Burris Fullfield II 3-9x40 Ballistic Plex, which have the 1/4" clicks, and am so happy with it that Burris is now my scope of choice. I won't buy a Leupold. I know, I know! They are great scopes I'm sure. But all I ever hear is Leupold this and Leupold that. For me it's definitely Burris.

Have a nice day.

Oh! And one more thing! Check out Natchez Shooting Supplies to see if they are still offering the free Burris Landmark Binoculars with the purchase of the Fullfield II scope. Hey, what the hell, the binocs are free and they are actually quite nice.

Midway was offering a similiar deal not long ago, but with a fixed-power spotting scope instead of binoculars.

Yeah they go back and forth between the binocs and the spotting scope. I like the binocs because I already have a spotting scope and Natchez usually offers either or. I'm not sure you get the tripod if you pick the spotting scope, however. I don't know.

Just bought a Burris FFII for my Tikka that I'm picking up tomorrow. Nice scope. Scope and 8x32 Landmark binocs for $180 can't be beat!

Get a NcStar! They're the best, and you can get one for about $69.00 + shipping.
































I'M JUST KIDDING!! :D Go with the Burris or Leupold.

It doesn't look like it comes with a tripod but since I already have binocs, I may go for the spotting scope.

I wish Natchez listed model numbers on their items. I was looking at the Burris Signature Select Scopes and had a hard time differentiating between some of the models.

Famous Maker HT2510. 2.5-10x44 scope. Awesome scope and only $150.

I just picked up a Leupold Mark 4 3.5-10x40 illuminated TMR because well... I guess I like designer s-h-i-t. The Leupold is crystal clear and cost 10 times more than my Famous Maker. Is it 10 times better? No way! If the Leupold is $1100 I say the Famous Maker should be $700. The only thing my Leupold has over the Famous Maker is greater eye relief and a little bit clearer.

The Chinese make good s-h-i-t.

I've had a Simmons Pro Hunter 3-9x40 on my Savage .308 for years. Never have had an issue with it (ask the 3 deer hanging over my mantle about the accuracy). :D
