Nathan, I will be hunting whitetail at no more than 100yds. I have Vortex PST, Diamondback Tactical, Crossfire. Since I have not gone on many hunting, I am not wanting a specific reticle as have not been hunting many times. I do like the exposed turrets. I hated the caps and having to use additional tools to adjust the elevation/wind on the Nikon.

Thank you.

I think you would really like a Viper HS or Diamondback HP. Both were really good scopes for me when I had them. The best of the price range.

If you are only going after whitetail out to 100 yards--my selection would be a relatively low-powered fixed magnification prism scope; but one with high quality resolution. You DO get what you pay for when it comes to optics. I know I can reliably hit targets with accuracy with my tiny burris RT3 out to at least 260 yds--but it has a limited eye relief that might not work with rifles with longer LOPs. But it has a very wide field of view and is ideal for sighting easily with both eyes open, and allows for great peripheral awareness in case Mr Big unexpectedly steps out someplace closer or to the side. Burris's retical allows for precise targeted or quick minute of deer--primary arms has similar optics and they do the same thing in a different way with their nice ACSS retical. I have quite a few primary arms optics and they all have worked reliably so far--but being made in China I expect they will go belly-up eventually. I think it's worth a couple hundred bucks to steer away from made in China stuff if at all possible.

Thanks guys for the help and suggestions. Sure will be tough to narrow it down, let alone choose 1.
