Ok, I'm new here and have been reading around and can see i'm wayyyyy out of my league here. But i figure you are the guys to ask. I just purchased my very first rifle. Not fancy at all, it's just a remington 770 in 300 win mag. I don't hunt, I just started in what i'm calling my new hobby.

I need a scope not to exceed the buying price of the gun (235 new, thought i got a good deal). I want to shoot no further than about 500 yards, but will always shoot this further than 300. You guys have any ideas as to what I should look for?

Re: new scope

Some guys like the Millett Tactical series,Had one years ago that was MEGA screwed up,sent it back and got a new one with no problems from their CS that was OK with none of the problems I complained about.Lot of features for an under $300 scope.Heavy SOB though.

In the lower price range a fixed power scope is really the only thing worth a crap. http://www.lapolicegear.com/bushnell-elite-3200-10x40mm.html </div></div>

Good suggestion for a scope at that price. I also like Nikon Buckmaster (which is a variable power 1" tube, but still gets the job done).

I also like LAPG for general gear, but for glass and some other specialty items, I try and support Hide vendors, who contribute thousands of dollars a year for rifle matches and for this forum...
