When I picked up my Savage 220F I was on a serious budget. I traded an old sported out O3A3 and a touch of cash for it. I couldn't afford the EGW mount or a scope so I grabbed 2 Weaver # 46 bases and headed home.
The only scope I had not on a gun was a Tasco Pronghorn 4x32 fixed power. That was 2 years ago. I haven't changed a thing. This beast plants clovers dead center @ 100yds with Remington Accu tips 2 3/4"! My best grp was 3/4" @ 100 yds.
Okay, that said.
I would really dig a 3-9x50mm scope. Its sinfully accurate, you won't be disappointed! I wish Boyds would come out with a walnut stock for it!
