Re: scope for 7rem mag.Please help
A fixed 10 power will do in a pinch, however there are times it has its limitations.
10 power in the field makes it a little tough to find a critter that is sneaking by at 50 yards, likewise it leaves a little to be desired when you're really trying for precise reticle placement at 1000 yards.
Personally I think a variable gives you the better all around option for a 100 to 1000 yard scope. There are a bunch out there that will do everything you need and still come in under your $600 budget. Look at the Nikon Monarchs, Clearidge Ultra XP5, Bushnell 4200 or 6500, Falcon Menace, Vortex, used Leupolds, Burris Signatures, the list goes on and on. Just narrow down what exactly you want/need from your scope and go from there.
Ignorance can be treated with education, sadly there is no cure for stupidity.
