500ish max

I'd like to put the right thing on it though. Not going to blow my wad.
Not really familiar with scopes though.

Get a Leupold.

I've got one on 4 different rifles and my .44mag, superblackhawk.

None have ever given me a problem.

Go to Leupold's website - then click on their custom shop. You can build an awesome scope with your name engraved on the turret and a BDC matched to your favorite load. You can do it all for under $500.

Second choice - Zeiss Conquest, I can only speak to the older version of the conquest, not the Terra. I have the exact same rig you are building, but in .300 win mag and it has a Zeiss on it and I have been extremely pleased, from Texas to Alaska it has worked great.

re: What would you scope it? (WWYSI)


what do yall think about the following:

Nikon Monarch 3; 4-16; 50mm; Nikoplex; $500
- one with bullet drop compensation is $510

Vortex Viper HS; 4-15; 5mm; $540

Thoughts on power level between 3.5-10 or 4-15?

Also thoughts on MM amount between 40 and 50?

is it worth paying $650 for the Leupold VX-3 4.5-14; 5mm?


eta: again i would mostly be using this rifle for casual deer hunting (1-3 times a year). however it would be something i'd keep long term.

I would go with Redfield or Leupold in that range. Have both and they work great. Have been impressed with Redfield scopes and mounts over the years. In one particular situation, I dropped my rifle several feet while climbing a ridge in Colorado. The scope took it hard against a rock and it was almost like looking through a coke bottle. I walked another 1/4 mile to find a place to shoot my gun. I spotted a coke-can-size rock about 100 yards away across a small draw. I squeezed the trigger and the rock exploded as the bullet hit it. Just then, a mule deer buck jumped out of the draw and the next shot went right through his lungs. That made me a believer in Redfield and have never had any issues.
