Yup. I'm 37 (long time coming), and a new rifle owner. Like I said, when I introduced myself, I have shot a few rifles over the years, but have always been more of a bowhunter, and decided this year to seriously take up rifle hunting here in Colorado. Thanks to this forum, for the knowledge that exists, to help a newbie, like me, out for his first purchase! I bought a Savage 116 FCSS in .338 Winchester Magnum. It seemed to be the consensus, for a great all-around big game gun for elk/bear/deer here in Colorado. Now, where to go from here is the next step? I need a scope, but for a while, won't have over $500 to spend on one. Any recommendations in that price range? Obviously, I don't plan on shooting at long ranges for a while, until I learn the finer points of owning a gun like this, but I would like to put decent glass on it, and upgrade parts as I get further into this type of hunting. So, let's here your scope recommendations in my price range, and any other upgrades I should immediately consider. Thanks!
