    you shouldn't have any problem finding a good leupold but i would reccomend also taking some of that money and get a decent scope mounting system as a scope is only as good as what holds it on.

    Yep for his purposes a VXIII 3.5-10x50 would be a great choice and they can be had well under that used.

    Also the Leupold tactical in the 4.5-14x50 would be a great choice and well within the price range buying used on the classifieds here, Sniper's Hide, or Ebay.

    Good choice. See my above post on the scope choices.

    I would have to say probably the 243 it would be a close tie with the 260 but with that max distance I would be ok with the .243

    This is by far the best deal going right now. Use their promotion for 50 off 500 and the scope cost about 460 with shipping. Vortex Viper HS Tactical Rifle Scope 30mm Tube 5-15x 44mm Side Focus

    Re: choicing new long range hunting rifle

    decided on a vortex viper hs lr 4-16x44mm for a scope . ive already got night force rings and bases . now for the new rifle ive decide on another 308 win now to decide on what stock i want it on. dont the models of the stocks but they are both vertical grip stocks. one is a hs precision and the other is a mcmillian . theyre both savage model tens the only differnce is the stocks . any thoughts on the scope or what rifle to choose?
