    I'm looking to get a scope for my 30-30 and hoping to spend about $100 or so. Right now I'm just target shooting, but I might start hunting too.

    Just like a few recommendations. Not sure if I'd be better off with a fixed or a smaller variable.

    Don't those eject out the top?

    Mine is an angle eject model. They were changed in the early 80s to an angle eject design. They use a 2 piece mount to the top of the reciever instead of the side mount.

    Any other suggestions? Would it help considerably to expand my budget to ~$150?

    Are there any downsides to a variable scope besides weight?

    for $160 I like the bushnell elite 3200s, they're plenty bright and the rainguard feature is nice for hunting as you can still see through the fogged scope. I have a 3-9x40 my muzzleloader (along with a 2.5-10x40 Elite 4200 on my 7mm Rem Mag) and my brother has 3-9 and 3-10x40 3200s on his .243 and muzzleloader, respectively.
