Re: Mount & scope for new Savage 111 L.R.H. 300 Win Mag
As far as the rail goes, a lot depends on how far you are hoping to shoot. A standard rail should get you to 1,000 yards or so with the 300 Win. The other thing that can help you decide is to know what yardage you want to zero your rifle at. For example, if you get a 20 MOA rail, you might not be able to zero at 100 yards (depending on the scope).
As far as a scope goes in that price range, I would suggest a Leupold VX-2 with CDS or M1 turrets. The glass is about as good as you can get in that price range, and the turrets really help out if you are dialing for the longer ranges. I have owned that as well as a Nikon Monarch, which is also in that price range, and the difference in glass between the two is substantial.
