    Gday fellas,

    Im looking for an upgrade on my 22-250. It currently wears an olivon tracker 6-24x50 AO. While being a cheap scope, it has performed flawlessly and I have no real reason to upgrade it. But i have put a custom left hand stock on my rifle to replace the synthetic junk that was on it, and think a new bit of glass on top is called for.

    Im looking at the Bushnell Elite 4200 6-24x50 side focus model and the Vortex Viper 6.5-20x50. I want the larger objective for shooting under the spotlight at night and also would prefer the 30mm tube. Are there any scopes that would also warrant looking at?

    Whats everyones opinions

    thanks

    I would stick with the bushnell 4200, sightron, or burris diamond.

    ok im going to put a $500US limit on it, can stretch a few dollars above but trying not to. For what its worth the scope that is on it now would be about $100 US.
     
  5. For brands you may also want to include Weaver and Sightron. I really like the side focus idea, but you should check to be sure it can focus close enough for you. For a 22-250 they are probably ok, but most of them don't go close enough for 22 rimfires.

    for your budget, the bushnell 4200 is the best your going to do.
