Re: what kind of rifle to use
I bought a Nikon 6-18X40 BuckMaster with target dot this year and have been impressed with the scope. I bought it locally here in Va. for about $320.00 with tax. I was skeptical but it has delivered performance beyond its price tag. I mounted it to a Savage 112BVSS in .300WinMag and it dials up/down consistently and accurately. The farthest I have "ran" it out to has been 650yds but it is dead on at that range.
Since I bought mine, Midway has had the Mil-Dot version on sale a couple of times for $299.99. It's not a Leupold or NightForce but it'll more than likely get you what you're searching for. Good luck. JohnnyK.
