Scope for a hunting rifle

I just purchased a Weatherby Vanguard Series II. It is chambered in 300 Weatherby mag. What would be a good scope for this rifle, for hunting out to 600 yards? Thanks for any advice.

Re: Scope for a hunting rifle

The biggest determining factor would be your budget. Let us know your budget and we can get you some better suggestions. I would recommend getting something in the 4-16x40-50mm size. With that much power I wouldnt worry much about having to find a 30mm tube and save yourself some money and weight and get a 1" tube as you wont need the additional travel the 30mm offers.

4-14 Zeiss Conquest. Pick one up from CameraLand a sponsor right here

BTW: They have some "demo" scopes on sale right now that have a "sweet" price on them.
