Leupold (http://www.midwayusa.com/rewriteaproduct/491454) 4 x 33 fixed.

PS--nice rifle. Trying to hold off from getting one myself for just a little longer now.

I favor the Leupold, although many other mid-range priced scopes have improved in quality in recent years.

As far as magnification, there's little real need for much over 4X inside 300 yards, if one's main use is deer hunting.

I like the 3x9, for benchrest load testing and "just target shootin'", or for varmint shooting...

Like dakotasin, many like a 6X. My father had one on an '06 for decades. Dunno positively why, but I've always felt the 6X was sorta betwixt and between. Less field of view than the 4X; less power than the variables with 7X to 9X capability. Tossup, I guess...

FWIW,

Nice choice. I may stray but I always come back to leupold- a fixed 4x,sounds like all you need. If you need to be more economical than that then Nikon buckmaster 4x, great for the money.

Try to make the stretch to a Zeiss Conquest 3x9x40----think I've still seen them for $399 but most places are $429 now.

Once you get a Zeiss---you'll never go back.

I believe it is.

Also Bear Basin does have the 3-9x40 Conquests for $399.

They'll also beat any other person's price. (http://www.bearbasin.com/catalog.htm)

Leupold VariX 2 3-9 (alot of scope for your price range. Burris Fullfield 2 3-9 (VERY bright and a little cheaper) , Zeiss Conquest ( a very high grade for a little more!) A Leupold 4x with duplex, won't ever fail you, and you will be aiming not twiddling!:D

I just put a Sightron 1.5-6x42 on my Win M70 .270. Haven't shot it yet, though. I've had great experience with Sightron glass in the past.

I'd say it depends on your intended use. If it's a 300-yard rifle, go with a 4-12x. If it's a short range rifle, say under 200, I'd suggest a 1.5-6 like mine.
