I like my Simmons 44 MAG on my 700 BDL .270. I read an article on scopes about a year ago that rated some of the upper end Tascos very highly (okay, stop laughing). They evidently have some in the $100 or so range that pick up a lot of light. I might try one on my 30-30.
I put an Aetec on my 700 270. I've been quite impressed. I bought an ADL with a plastic stock and topped it with the Simmons for my 4-wheeler gun. I sighted it in 5 years ago and haven't adjusted since. As far as I'm concerned, it takes abuse well. I've done alot of hunting in the canyons of N.W. Texas, for Aoudad, figured iffin I dropped it, I haven't lost as much as a BDL with a Leopold.
