Default Nikon Prostaff or Leupold rifleman

In your openion, which of these scopes are better? I just got a new (used) .270 rifle and was wanting to put a 3x9x40 scope on it. I have narrowed down to these 2 choices. Any input, bad or good would be appreciated for these 2 scopes.

Thanks!

+1 Ron's comments. The rifleman scopes are junk...IMO. I'd either get the Nikon Buckmasters or, better yet, either the Bushnell Elite 3200 or the Nikon Team Primos.

Yep out of those two I'd get the Nikon. However, I think you'd be much better off with a Burris Fullfield II or a Bushnell Elite 3200 or even the Nikon Team Primos.

if you want a very long eye relief then the loopy is the one. both have a fairly narrow field of view . i'd go up to the buckmasters in the nikon,better optics ,but still narrow FOV. i bought a buckmasters and hated the FOV.

I think the Nikon is the best buy for the money. I have a Vari X II 3x9 and both a Nikon Prostaff 3x9 and a Buckmasters 3x9. I think both the Nikons are a clearer image with more light throughput than the Leupold. The Prostaff is half the money essentially and the Buckmasters is about 90 bucks less. I think the Buckmasters are about the best buy riflescope out there, sure it is $210 bucks without looking for a deal too hard. But it has excellent glass and excellent light transmission. The adjustment knobs are finger adjustable too which is a nice touch. I will be scoping new rifles with the Buckmasters for a while.
