Re: new savage predator need advice
warne maxima are awsome for the money. I have them on my lightwieght .338 RUM and they havent budged in 6 years.
I would reconside the 4-16 viper. If its going to be a yote gun for 500 and less, I would (and did actually) go with a 2.5-10. You will be able to hit dogs just fine at 700 yards, if you and your rifle can, using 10x. Ive only shot a handlefull of dogs, but when I have they have been close and when you get three coming in you want the best chance at a double or tripple. That means being able to get sight picture fast.
I always set up for the long shot, but they dont come as often as the normal/close range shots. I did manage to get my first double last year, and was thankfull for the lower mag.
