Stumbled upon this link over on Rimfire Central of all places. $89!
I own 3 Nikons and they are great scopes.

Cool thanks Hoot! I ordered one I had some gift cards from work cost me a whopping 35 bucks. I'll give it a try and if it doesn't work out on the 450BM. I can put it on my 10-22 ;)

It should work fine. I have this scope on my Bushmaster 450. Zeroed at 100yards. 1st circle down dead on at 150 yards. 2nd circle dead on at 250 yards.
Don't figure I I will shoot at anything further than that. Glass is very clear and light gathering capability is great.

I didn't think I would like the bdc circles but, after shooting it, I am hooked going to buy more at this price it can't be beat. The glass is very clear, lockable eye focus and aluminum turrets.

I've used Nikons for years, and love every one of them. They really are, if anything, way under-priced for their durability and quality. Personally, I really like the BDC dot/circles, especially for the 450b, where I've found them to be spot-on for factory loads (very nearly the same for some handloads, too)...unbelievable price, especially from Cabela's!
