Re: New guy from New Hampshire

Probably going to be too much scope/magnification for NH hunting. I'm certainly now expert, but 10x might be tough getting on a deer in the hard/soft woods. I learned the hard way this year after I left my scope on 5x from checking out some moose. We jumped a nice buck and he was gone before I could hit the safety. That scope certainly has great reviews in the lower price tactical scope, but for NH hunting I think not.

Ian- i would have a muzzle break installed. i would get a variable power scope not a 10x. i have a 7mm adl it shoots great. i recently shot a 5 shot group at 100 yards with that was in the .1s. the 7mm is a great long range round. the secret service used a rem 700 sendero/pss to protect the president.
