Bushnell Elite 4200 3x0x40 at about $250 is the best scope for the money. Go to the thread titled "Nikon 6x24 SF" and look at the SWFA selection of all scopes. They also have a Refurbished/Demo scope store you can check out.

Try Optics Planet. I recently bought a scope from them and they were cheaper than anyone I compared to. The shipping is also free over $30 orders. Try the Bushnell Elite 3200 in 3x9x40 in silver for $199 which aligns to your budget. SWFA also has this scope for $199 but you will pay for the shipping.

I just bought one the Burris Fullfield II 3x9x40 scopes with the eTrex GPS included. The local Dicks Sporting Goods had it on clearance for $199.99. Being that the GPS is $85-100 online even or $100 or so at Dicks then it being a $203 scope on CTD I found it too good of a deal to pass up. I'm keeping it as a spare scope so can't comment on how I like it on the gun yet but lots of guys I talked to prior to purchasing it say they had them and really liked them.

That Gps deal they have is $229 so might be worth checking with your local Dicks Sporting Goods to see if it's on clearance like it was at mine. I'm starting to think I got a really good deal.
