Hi all,
I'm looking for some suggestions for a budget conscious scope suitable for Hunter class rules.

Scope Budget = under $250 for the scope. I have a preference for mil-dot; I hate adjusting dials.

Intended rifle:
RWS 850, .177, (shoots ~ 685fps on a typical 15-17C day, RWS Exact)

caveat,
It may end up on a springer one day if I ever upgrade from the RWS 850 to air.

The Bushnell Legend 5-15 has always been a very popular choice with HFT shooters, I own one as well and like it.

They stopped making them awhile ago, but Sniper was able to purchase a bunch before they disappeared:http://www.airgunforum.ca/store/product_info.php?cPath=28&products_id=48

The Bushnell from Sniper is good value and bright optics, I don`t own one though, I have only played with it. Leapers make some pretty good scopes. I have a 3-12X44 accushot and have been really pleased.. about your price range also... Enjoy
