Millet Scopes

I am looking to scope a 243 for coyote hunting, target shooting, and occasional deer hunting (priorities are in respective order). I was considering millet after viewing a demo model. Other choices would be a lower priced Leoupold or Nikon. I would like the scope to hold a consistent zero, group as well as the rifle can, and provide light for shooting in twilight or night time situations. Since price is a factor, I was wondering what opinions you have on the Millet scopes, or any others you might recommend. Also, is a lighted reticle worth looking into?

Buy a Bushnell instead of a Millet the Bushnell is a better scope or you might want to look into an Optronic's or even a BSA for that matter. as for a lighted retical some are ok and some arent the Bushnell is pretty good from what i hear. now if it were me i would save awhile and buy a good Leupold and forget about it. but all my guns have either Leupold or Burris on them. but for the money if it is a concern go with a Bushnell rain gaurd.

Here's a link that is worth a read, gives a general overview on Milet as well as others. I have no experience with Millet scopes, but I think I'de be inclined to choose from the more well known brands

Here is another scope link from the same site Hammer1's came from that makes the comparisons easy for you. Hope it helps.

Thanks for the advice. I found Nikon buckmasters that seemed bright and went with it. The Bushnell Elite scopes seemed very bright also, a long way from the old sportsman I have. I thought the millet scopes were made over here, but I was wrong. I would have liked to have seen a sightron model, but couldn't find one. I haven't had a problem with any Leoupold I've owned yet, but wanted to try something different. Hope the zero doesn't drift on this Nikon.

I've got a 3-9x Nikon on my 243 and a 4 1/2-14 Nikon an my 6.5x06. They both seem to work well and both came with a lifetime warrenty that cover's anyone who owns it at the time. Just like the Leupold. Now I don't know how much trouble it might be to get service on the warenty but nless it breaks, it don't matter!
