Hi folks, As I often do about all gun purchases, I'm agonizing about what scope to finally top my sheep rifle with. I have a Borden 300WSM that weighs in around 7 pounds, unscoped. It was my intent to go with this weight as I wanted to put as much weight into the barrel as possible, while keep everything else at a minimum (skeletonized bolt, blind magazine, slender stock etc, Near Mfg. Ultraloy rings) to maximize accuracy potential. I'm also 6'2", 210 pounds and really don't mind an extra bit of weight, as I've really slimmed down all my gear to go ultra lightweight. Where I'm struggling is I REALLY want to put the S&B 5-25x56mm on the gun, and need a great reason to be talked out of it. I know this magnification is way more than I need for actually shooting, but by my way of thinking, i'll have a huge advantage in field judging animals. I remember my Dall's hunt a couple of years ago where the groups of 8 rams was on the move. Had it not been for my buddy who tracked them through the spotting scope at 400 yards, there is no way I would have been able to keep track of the big guy I eventually harvested. Other than the extra weight, can anyone think of a reason to talk me out of it? Help is greatly appreciated!! Please consider that the minimum scope I'll have on this gun is the S&B 4-16x50mm PMII which is already on order, but can be changed if I go with the 5-25x56mm. Plus, as an added bonus, I should be able have better long range practice sessions on the range. Help!!
