Re: what scope to buy

Welcome, Eric. I'm pretty new here too and still learning. One of the writers here, Jerry Teo (aka Mysticplayer), really likes the Bushnell Elite 4200. Check out his article "Long Range Hunting Rifle On A Budget". He says he has 12 of them. Normally, that scope is out my price range as well as the one you set for yourself, but as luck would have it, I stumbled on to a sale. The Bushnell list price is around $700. But 3rd Generation Shooting Supply has one for under $300. I bought a 6-24x40 for under $350. I don't even have a gun to put it on yet. Check the link below.

Eric, just wondering if you've tried optical range compensation as opposed to traditional setting-in-the-clicks? I've been using Leupold's Varmint Hunters Reticle and love the displayed info. After laser-range-finding, and by-guess-and-by-gollying the wind, the sight picture the reticle gives me is refreshing.

Good choice. I don't think you'll be disappointed until you outgrow it. JohnnyK.
