I like the usual suspects for long range shooting...Loopie. Swaro... (I think the Nikon Monarch is a good value, but I just picked up a custom Ruger carbine, barrel is a shade under 18", in 6mm Rem and I have no idea what to mount on it. It had a Burris 2x7 on it, but it was just too heavy and wrecked the balance. I'll be using the little gun for hike in whitetail, maybe some coyotes, marmots... So, should I just stick a Leupold M8 4x on it? Or, am I crazy to think about a 1x28 Red Dot sight, like one of those Bushnell Trophy 4 recticles? Or what about one of those holosights? Or could I mount a bushnell elite 3200 handgun scope with a firefly recticle on it? One of the new Burris compact magnum scopes? As you can tell, I'm pretty confused.
