Scope recommendations for 7mm Rem Mag

Hi, I have a Savage 7mm Rem Mag. It is a hunting rifle and I would like to be able to shoot long range with it.

I also would like to keep the weight down.

What is a good compromise between a long range scope that does not weight 30 plus ounces.

As a starting point I like the Leupold Mark 4 3.5-10x40mm LR/T M1 or M3 as far as design and features and weight. I also like the 4.5x14, however, I am not crazy about the 50mm objective.

The Nightforce 2.5-10x33 looks nice, but I'd rather have 40mm objective.

What kind of options are available in say 18 ounce plus or minus, 3 or 4 to 12 or 14 power scopes with target turrets, and 40mm objectives?

Thanks
Bill

Leupold makes a 4.5-14x40 MarkIV with target turrets.

Do you mean
Mark 4 4.5-14x40mm LR/T Target ?


I don't think that has the target turrets, does it?

Yes, that's what the Target at the end stands for.

Thanks. I noticed it looks like the turrets are not adjustable, like the other ones. Would Leupold be able to install turrets?
Thanks

Re: Scope recommendations for 7mm Rem Mag

I have a Nikon 3-9 on my 26" bbl 7 mag and it definitely is not enough scope for the gun. I am looking into 4.5-14 or 4-16 for next yr.

I'm not sure what you mean exactly? Those turrets adjust just like the others do. The target turrets come with caps, is that what you are talking about? You could have them install the M1 style if you'd like.
