    Hey for everyone. I'm new very new. :)
    I need a little help with my "problem". I have a Savage 10FP .308 24" heavy barrel , and I'm planning to get my first scope.

    Nikon Monarch 5-20X44 BDC or Vortex Viper 6.5-20X44 BDC or MIL-dot ???

    The Nikon is 40 MOA the Viper is 68 MOA. I already have a EGW Savage RB (Round Back) Picatinny Tactical Rail Scope Mount.
    I don't know what rings I need because if I will go with a Viper (most likely) than I need a 30mm rings. What I found here :
    Vortex - Camera Land NY

    Also the guy at the cameraland said I need a high tactical ring!??

    My question is If I will go with Viper , what type of rings I need ? LOW, Medium or High?
    Or other brand? Please help me , I would like to order today!
    If I will get a Nikon Monarch , I already have a Burris Zee Signature 1" Rifle Scope Mount Rings for Weaver Style bases for it.


    Soooo, Viper, or Monarch....BDC or Mil-DOT. And what rings??
    Thank You!

    It looks a 1/2 is more comfortable :) .And u answered to my other question as well, means the EGW rail I have will work :)
    Do you think a Viper 30mm will be better choice than a Monarch?
    And what reticle? Mill dot, or BDC?
