Scope Questions
 
I just bought a new Tikka T3 in .300WSM. Now I need a scope, I have been thinking of putting a Leo VX-2 or VX-3 on it. I would like to keep the scope price under $500.

Pros/cons of those, or any other recommendations?

If a 3-9 is what you want, I can recommend 2 that are 400$. The Zeiss Conquest 3-9 x 40, and the Meopta 3-9 x 42. Both are terrific optics. Extremely bright, very crisp, and lots of eye relief. Either one is a bargain at 399$ in my experience. I've used both in the field for a few years now, and I'd buy either one again in a heartbeat.

Jack suggestion is solid.

Lots of good glass in 300-400 ballpark.

I've ran lots of vxii 3-9s with no trouble at all

Wow old thread.. lol... I did by a Leo VX-II, and took it to africa where it was used to take 5 animals, plus a 160 class whitetail back home. Loved the scope..

My first scopes were original Weavers. Back then they were good scopes and have served me well throughout the years. Next I went to original Redfield's. I still have my Wide-field in 3x9 and just returned from Africa where it took game out to 350 yards with no problems. After Redfield sold, I tried Leupold and own a number of them. One of my favorite models, was the VL-X (cut away) so I could use low rings with a 50mm bell. It was great at times. Other times it would jump out of alignment, but Leupold has a solid warranty. When Nikon introduced their camo line, I put one of my shotgun and one on my muzzle loader (3x9's) they have been excellent. Now comes Vortex. I kept hearing how great they were so I put a 1x4x24mm on my African heavy rifle. Shot around 12 rounds at the range, one at the range in Africa, one on a Cape Buffalo and another on a large Roan antelope. No problems. I was impressed. I'd stay with quality scopes that offer not only a lifetime warranty, but a good reputation for customer service. I've only had to return one Leupold and that was the VL-X, and Leupold advised they had some problems with the early models.
