Re: scope for Savage Long Range Varmenter
While I agree with budlight, I have used a Nikon Buckmaster 6-18x40 for about a year or so w/target dot. That scope allowed me to see gophers out to 1100yds no problem. That would be my first choice if on a budget, but the Vortex Viper is also a good option too. I ended up selling my Nikon to get the Vortex due to the higher power and elevation adjustments. So that is where I would start. If you don't really have a limit, then look at the Nikon Monarchs, Sightron SIII's, Vortex PST's, Leupy's, Bushnell Elite 4200, and obviously Night Force. For that kind of yardage you really will only need a max of about 10x-15x.
