raised n Bullitt Co.
go with Leupold or Burris or make the jump to the really dollar scopes.

what's your "pricey" range?

also, i would stick with matte. i have two silver scopes and while they look good and match the rifle (and pistol), too bright when the sun hits it. if you're set on a silver one, i have a silver leupold VX3 i'm replacing on a rifle, $300.

The END!!!!
Nikon Buckmasters II 4x12x40 BDC plus Weaver Rings $133 Amazon Prime.
I had a Nikon Buckmasters 3-9x40 BDC, it was lacking what I wanted, but I do think the Nikon 4-12x40 would've suited my wants/needs.
When I'm shooting, I like a very small dot to aim at, my eyes ain't what they use to be, so more magnification works for me,
Some people are satisfied with softball size groups,
I aim small, I like dime size groups,
some may argue that more magnification don't help, but it sure does with me.
I've had my son shooting nail heads for practice.

How much do you want to spend?

I have had Leupold on all my rifles.

Can't go wrong with Burris, Nikon, or the American made Red fields.

You really do get what you pay for in a scope. I normally spend no less then $250 on a scope.

Leupold makes Redfield. I agree a good scope is important but there are plenty of good scopes out there you don’t have to pay a fortune for. Cheap scopes nowadays have better glass in them than expensive scopes 20 years ago.
