Just picked up a Vortex Viper 2-7x for $170 shipped for my Remington 700 SPS Tactical.

This model is discontinued so it's deeply discounted. Check out swfa.com

It apparently gets great reviews with excellent quality glass

A friend has a 6-18X Nikon Buckmaster. Great optics.

I agree with the NIKON Monarch.

I researched this for months before I settled with the NIKON Monarch 5-20x44.

The Monarch is one of the best top-of-the-line scopes for mid-range prices.

They used to be manufactured in Japan but due to labor costs they moved the whole tooling factory to the Philippines. Which is where Burris also manufactures their scopes. Quality has not been an issue since the move.

Can't go wrong with either, I guess.

Here is an excellent URL for info about scopes: http://www.chuckhawks.com/index2i.scopes_optics.htm
