I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for a good scope and mounts that'll get this rifle set up for 500yrds and up shooting? Thanks.
I went with an EGW 0MOA rail and TSRW rings.
Scope wise you can get along with many of them out to 500yds, but I would not put a cheap scope on any magnum.
10x is plenty of magnification for anything but prairie dogs and rabbits at that range so I'd say see if you can pick up a good used Leupold 3.5-10x50 in the classifieds here or maybe on Ebay. Great scopes well worth the money.
The other suggestion I'd make is a Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14x44.
If you have the budget to do so, you might consider stepping up to something like the 4.5-14 IOR Tactical. Phenomenal scope for the money.
