Harv. On Milling it depents on what scope you have. Some of the scopes with mill dots only work at the max power setting for milling. Some of the newer ones work from 3.5 to 10 power.

    Thanks for all the replies. I think I am leaning towards the 2.5-10. I have some time so will research some more before I decide.

    Harv,
    I put a Bushnell Elite 4200 2.5-10 on my 257 Weatherby. I wish I had got something with the target turrets, but I am happy otherwise. Not a real long range set-up but I did get to the clay pigeons at 710 yards and the 6" x 8" steel plates at 920. The pigeons were a little small and I would of liked some more zoom for them, but they are a lot smaller than a deer. I went with the 2.5-10 because this is an all around gun and light gathering ability in the woods in early morning was important to me. For open country, afternoon hunting I would have went for more magnification.
