Hello all,

Looking for recommendations on a scope for a new rifle. Savage Axis .270 with the stainless barrel. Using for deer average shot is 100 yards. Would like silver to match the barrel. Budget is $150 tops. Haven't bought a scope in probably 8 years not really sure where to start. All opinions considered, thanks!

Henome. I don't personally have any experience with thermal but if you call and talk to the people at TNVC I bet they could help.

I want to ask about thermal rifle scope, who has it? I found good variant from ATN, it is THOR-HD 384 1.25-5x THERMAL RIFLE SCOPE. I read that it is the most technologically advanced line of thermal rifle scopes on the market bar none. Characteristics and possibilities are impressive. What can you say?

I have bought scopes from Bear Basin Outfitters. I have not bought a scope in a while and don't know if they are cheaper than others mentioned here but it may be worth a look.

I forgot to mention Primary Arms. They are known for their "budget" optics and I believe they have recently upped their warranty.

I checked out SWFA and the prices are really low. I only checked Leupold VX-2 because I had been looking at them already. It's a good place to start. 

My advice is don't buy a cheap scope now and replace it in 5 years. That's what I am doing.

I know I'm going to get burned with internet karma for this but here it goes..

ifish267 is right , Opticsplanet is good but there is one or two that will get you better savings most of the time. One is B&H Photo, good selection and usually the best web prices I know of. However, the best I've come across is SWFA Outdoors, their advertised prices are right there with most everyone and if you're willing to do a little bit of keyboard work they have a 110% price match guarantee that has saved me bunches. You need to click on the "About" tab on the top of their web page and it'll explain the process from there.

I have a very nice Leupold VX III 2.5-8 that I will sell for $300 used.  It is $400 new.

Opticsplanet.com is hard to beat for in stock items and price comparison.

Thanks for all the great input so far. I'm still debating exactly how much I'd like to spend on this rifle with accessories. I'd like to find some of these scopes locally, but if not I'll have to look online. Any online retailers to stay away from?
