That is an excellent scope for the money, also you might look into the 6-18x50 Banner. But it costs quite a bit more.

The 3x9x40 elite 3200 is a great choice for big game hunting.3x at low power works well for close range shots and 9x is suitable for big game at ranges as far as 500 yards.More magnification is a handicap at closer ranges.As far as objective lens size is concerned,the 40 mm allows a person to mount the scope lower which helps to obtain a better cheek position on the stock.The banner is actually a lower quality,lower pricedbushnell scope that does not have the rainguard feature.

That is alot of scope for 200 bucks. This is one of hte most popular scopes on the market.
But My personal choice would be either the Burris Fullfield II at around the same price or cheaper, and the Sightron SII 3-9x40 without the adjustable objective. This one is just over 200 bucks
