Bushmaster 450 Best Scope for hunting?

Postby Bushmaster450 on Wed Feb 27, 2008 2:26 pm

I just bought a bushmaster 450 to hunt deer, hogs, black bear, mountain lions,etc. The ballistics on the round are -3.4 at 200yards and -24.5 at 300 yards. I dont look to shoot over 250 with this weapon. What scope would you buy?

My choice would probably be a Leupold VX-III 1.75-6x32 with Burris #420183 XTR rings.

Thanks Steve!!! I just found this site today and I see you are the in house expert!!! I had thought about the Nikon Omega as I would probably not shoot past 250 yards with the 450. I will go do some research on the scope you mentioned and put it on the short list.
