Best 3X9 for under $250..

I just bought my son a 7 mag and am looking for quality 3X9 to put on it. The brands I've looked at are Bushnell Elite 3200, Nikon Buckmaster, Leupold VXI, Burris Fullfield. If you have had any experience with these or others... let me know what you think. Also if you know of a good place to buy, let me know that too.

Cool Bushnell Elite 3200

I really like my Elite 3200 and the rainguard.
It is not our abilities that tell us who we are, it is our choices.

I have used the Elite 3200, Buckmaster, and Fullfield. out of the three, I'd say it's a tossup, although clarity is better with the Nikon and Burris. I personally went with the Burris. I can personally say that the burris will stand up to the 7 mag, and the ballistic plex reticle will come in handy for longer range shooting. JMHO

We hunt, not only because we want to, but because at our basest levels we must.

How old is your son? And how big ? The ONLY problem I have with the 3200 (I have 2) is eye relief, but I think they are a super scope.
