I need a scope rec that would be good for practice, and also would be good for some training classes I'm looking to take. Here's the background... Last year I decided to build a long range rig that would be used for hunting, and I dropped a decent amount of cash taking a Rem700 action, blueprinting it, and adding a bunch of custom components (barrel, stock, trigger, etc.) to make a really nice 300 win mag. The rifle is great and I love it, but I don't know how to really use it to its potential. I didn't spend super amounts on the scope- I bought a Monarch 5-20x44SF with a Nikoplex reticle. At the time, since I'd use it for hunting, I figured that reticle would serve me well and I'd add a custom turret for the loads I worked up. Fast forward to now- I need practice to shoot at longer ranges and figured a training class or 3 would be a good idea. The problems I have are 1- classes suggest a Mil-dot reticle on an "easily adjustable" scope, and 2- putting 400 rounds of 300 win mag down range over a 3-5 day period of time sounds painful on both my shoulder and my wallet. To solve problem 2, I just bought a Rem700 ADL with a Varmit heavy barrel chambered in .308, tuned the trigger, have a 20moa base on order and plan to eventually swap the stock. I still have problem 1, though, of finding a scope that is affordable and will meet the needs for my practice both on my own and in a training class envioronmnet. I'm not sure what is meant by "easily adjustable"- are they talking about a variable power scope or are they referring to adjustment of the turrets? For a fixed power, I've heard great things about the affordable Bushnell Elite Tactical 3200 10x40 and the SWFA SS 10x42, but I'm not sure if I should go with fixed or variable. Anyone take these classes? Any recs on a scope for my .308? I only bought the .308 to be a practice rifle to help me learn long range shooting (reading wind, estimating range, etc.). I'd prefer not to drop a ton of money on a scope for this rifle...I would like to upgrade the scope on my 300win mag eventually, but not until after I've taken a course or two and am confident in my abilities beyond 600 and out to 1k. Sorry for the long post, but thank you in advance for your help!
