Scope Choice For Cooper 6.5x284

Just purchased a Cooper Model 52 in 6.5x284 and now wanting some ideas as of what brand of scope, power, and reticle to match up with this rifle?

Might use it a little for deer hunting from a blind. But will probably use it mostly for punching holes in paper.

Burris, Nikon, Vortex, Leupold, Nightforce, and Schmidt Bender make fine scopes along with many other manufacturers. But, they vary greatly in features, quality, and price.

Do you have a budget in mind?

What distances do you plan to shoot?

Do you already own any other scopes?

Will you use this scope on other rifles?

Will you need to range with your reticle?

Do you expect to use the reticle for holdover? And/or do you plan to occasionally, mostly, or always dial for elevation and/or windage?

Do you have experience using MILs? Or, are you somewhat accustomed to MOA?

Is size/weight a big factor?

Do you plan to do any night and/or low light shooting?
