I've been contemplating replacing my Tasco 6-24x40mm scope on my .25-06 to a straight power for simplicity. I was thinking of something in the 6x, 8x or 10x category. I also ask that we stick with the 40mm objective bell size. 50's just get too HIGH for me!

I'd like some ideas on where to start looking. I would imagine it will be some time before I buy, but suspect keeping it under $250 would be mandatory!

Thanks for any hints on what to get and what to stay away from! :)

I don't recommend Swift scopes. And why a fixed scope? 6x, 8x, 10x? That's quite a difference in power.

scope choices

for most of your hunting situations excluding varmiting you wont need anything larger than a 6 power so dont feel like you need to have all the bells and whistles with the big name on it to satisfy your needs, I have a few swift scopes on a few of my rifles, they are on the lower recoiling ones I just feel a little more at ease with them there dont think I would be in a big hurry to put one on a larger rifle for a once in a lifetime type hunt outwest but I have been satisfied with the job they have done for me when called on. :D JIM

Read about my Swift scope experience in another thread.

I really liked the scope, but had problems on a high recoil gun. Bought a Ziess for the big boomer and exchanged the broken Swift for a new Swift just like it to put on a 264 Win Mag.

In summary, in my opinion, the Swift is good, depandant on what you put it on.
