Well guys, I think I have settled on the Nikon Buckmaster 4.5x14 and I would like to know if you good fellas know of any other scopes with the same quality if glass with mil-dots that are in the price range? I was hoping to get a just a variable 10X (because I don't really need a 14X) but the price is right on the Nikon. Thanks

You already know how I feel.

Let's wait and see how long til the "if it ain't Leupold it's CRAP" crowd comes along and suggests you buy a $1500 scope instead.

You mean you haven't tried it out yet, and you're already calling it "not too bad" but the Leupold is better?

I have actually owned a Super Sniper, and it's a darned bright, clear piece of glass. It's also big and heavy, so I didn't keep it.

I have looked through Leupolds, and though they are bright, and clear, The one and only ACOG I ever looked through was brighter and clearer still. They're another excellent quality option, but they're not the only game in town.

I've been eying the Nikon with the green or red illuminated reticles myself... May have to try it out in the not too near future.

no, only heard really good things about them. but im still going to test one, see if it fits "my needs" LOL. but there is no way the super sniper compares to leupold, ive shot a couple of them, but never spent any time with it.

I bought a new Buckmaster 4.5x14x40, and also a used SS 10x42. The Nikon noticeably clearer and brighter, to me. It's not that the SS is bad, though. But since Midway has the Buckmaster for $237 dealer, the choice of which to get for me is pretty clear. I'm most likely gonna pick up one of the mil dot Buckmaster in the next few months.

I've got the SS on my DPMS .308, so it's size actually kinda fits the rifle, but DAMN those turrets are big on that thing.
