Ok, I am new at this stuff, so please bear with me.... I am getting a Savage .308 to be my first serious long range stick. I am going to have no more than $550 in my budget for the optic. Here are a few I am looking at, please tell me pros and cons, or make other suggestions. I want a scope that tracks well, and preferably has some sort of mil reticle, and mil turrets. My buddy who is an Army Sniper gets out this summer, so I am trying to get set up before then, and get the rifle and myself figured out a bit. Burris 3.5-10x42 MTAC 30mm Rifle Scope Burris 4.5-14x42 MTAC 30mm Rifle Scope Vortex Viper HS Tactical Rifle Scope 30mm Tube 5-15x 44mm Side Focus Again, my budget is $1350 or a bit less for the total project. The rifle is going to be about $750, then I have to get base and rings, so $500-$550 is my optics budget.
