    I just bought a new Tikka 30-06. So many scope choices. Any opinions of good value 4-12x scopes?

    There's the Redfield Revolution 4-12x40, as well. Owned by Leupold and also made in America. Super clear glass and very affordable!

    It is good to hear there is some good made in America options. I believe the CDS option is ballistic table to dial in a load. I want to shoot Low Recoil 215 grain for my son and standard 150 grain for myself, any experience swapping out ballistics on sight? How close is 0?

    I am not going to bash any other brand but my Burris has held up shot after shot on a 300 mag and I never have to adjust it. I have paid more money for other brands that required constant adjustment.

    Those are all good scopes... I picked up a Pentax Game seeker 4x12 on Ebay for cheaper that Nikon or Burris... Been a good scope for the money... Also has the BDC reticle.

    I have Burris's as well as Lupy's III's and have no complaints with any of them. Good luck with your decision and if you go with either of these brands I doubt you'd be disapointed.
