Re: new rifle
Keep look out on here and other sites to include ebay for good used B&L, sightron, nikon, leupold, T-model weaver etc. Should be able to get one for $200 and under. Forget the Tasco other than the supersnipers.
B&L sells a 3200 model 10x with mil dots and should be able to find one new for under $175. Has 100 minutes of elevation. I paid $149 from Natchez. It is on 110 FP in 308. Will easily work for what you want and save you money for bullets!
Use any base and Burris Signature rings with the inserts. They are .05, .10, and .20. You can use any combo to get .020 or .25 which will easily allow you to get 1000. They will only cost about $30-45 and hard to beat.
