Hi folks, im new to the forum and needing a little help. Im gonna buy a new rifle pretty soon and its more than likely going to be the savage weather warrior in left hand. I do like the feel of the X bolt more but its not offered I synthetic for lefties. Heres the thing I know what scope im getting, the zeiss mentioned in the title. I see that alot of guys prefer a smaller more compact scope on a short action gun. Whats the reason for this? Is it just for looks or do the smallee scopes balance these handier rifles better? For the scope mentioned which caliber would you choose?
