I have 2 rifles i need scopes for: The first is the custom job i have in the shop (6.5x284 norma, stiller tac300 action, abs barrel, lonewolf stock)- intended use is sheep, but i will likely use it anytime i get the chance deer, coyote, paper circles at long distances... etc. i am leaning toward a fixed power scope, but the only limitation i have is i dont want to spend over 1000ish i may go as high as 1200-1500 if the scope is that great, but i am open to any opinions or suggestions. light weight is key here. the second rifle is a savage 10 ml 2, (its a muzzle loader for those that dont know) its use will be on deer to extend my season a little. i have no ideas on a scope, so i am wide open to any crazy ideas.
