Need Help With Scope For Sendero

I am the owner of a new sendero sf II in 300 win mag. I would like to be able to shoot game out to 500 yards max. I am on a budget and am looking at the vari x II in 4-12x40 AO and the vari x 3 in 4.5-14x40. I am looking at $700 max for the scope with tax. Are these scopes a good option? Any and all suggestions welcome. Thanks!!

the 4.5-14 is a better scope.

Thanks for the reply, that is the one i was leaning to. Eventually I may want to shoot out to 700 or 800, would I need to upgrade my scope?

Re: Need Help With Scope For Sendero

The second I put a new scope on my rifle it becomes a used one. Look around with an eye for the future. Some folks quickly find 500yds. as interesting as throwing rocks while others find that 4X is not low enough to to be versatile. I have purchased a wrong scope and found it to be too expensive at any price -- so many good ones out there. I honestly see these questions are less about a particular scope in as much as they are more about suitability for the task with the money at hand.

Re: Need Help With Scope For Sendero

There are lots of discussions here about the right scopes. So, you might try a little searching.

One thing to consider if you have or will have multiple rifles is to begin using 20 MOA picatinny rails for your bases.

These give the best versatility, performance, and affordability of any mounting system that I've run into. I like the EGW rails and Burris Tactical Elite rings.

It's very easy to switch scopes between rifles.

loaded for 4 300 wm senderos besides mine. it is the most forgiving cartridge to load for after the .222 and 308. just my experience. install a vais. adjust the trigger . mount scope. enjoy.
