Re: New here looking for advise
I have been in your shoes before...Back in 2008 I got 4 of mine stolen from me, to the value of around $23,300......Insurance, of course, ripped me a new asshole.
So I have slowly been replacing mine.
The Bushnell Elite 4200 is a good scope for the money. And the Weatherby Vanguard S2 is a great rifle. You should look into the .257 Weatherby Magnum caliber. It's perfect for whitetails. Of the 7mm Weatherby Magnum or 7mm Remington Magnum.
As for base and rings, EGW makes a nice base for the Vanuards, and TPS TSR rings are the same quality, but 1/2 the price of Nightforce or Badger rings.

Ignore everything I say, because I have a reading comprehension and memory problem...
