Been looking at this rifle in .243. Going to be basically a truck gun, maybe a few deer when season comes up and to shoot at the local gun club.
I like it because of the short barrel and wanting to teach my younger son on it.
Any ideas for a scope? Best place to find one? Locally they are $650.00 and I know that has to be way too much.

I still have the Ruger 243 Win with a 4x fixed power Weaver that I received for Christmas some 15 or so years ago. It has been my main deer rifle since then and have taken many deer with it, in addition to my wife (we won't go into her first deer hunting trip!). It is a fine weapon and I highly recommend it.
