    Looking for a scope for a Remington 660 carbine in .308? I've just put a Weaver base and Leupold rings on it. What scope power for it, fixed 4x or should I go with 3-6/9x variable power. I'm leaning toward the fixed power.

    Specs as bought
    Remington 660 Carbine
    18" Barrel / iron sights
    Monte Carlo / Mannlicher style stock - fully bedded
    1" Sling Swivels
    1" Uncle Mikes M1907 style sling
    After Market trigger - Mgf unknown

    Specs as of now
    1 1/4" Sling swivels
    Cheap WalMart M1907 style sling
    Weaver base
    Leupold See-Thru rings

    Will be adding
    Turner Saddlery M1907 style sling
    Metal trigger guard / base plate

    I don't have any specific use for it, it's just a project gun. But would make a good hunting rifle if I need something short and light.

    So, if it were your rifle what scope power. I'm not looking for any brands to go with, just scope power.

    I would
    1. Ditch the look under brackets. Get a good QD mount if you plan to tear up the scope and need the irons.
    2. 2-7 variable.

    I’ve got a similar setup:

    REM Mod 7 Mannlicher from the custom shop in .350 Rem Mag that I used for a timber elk rifle.

    I topped it off with a Swarovski 1.25-4X Professional in Warne QD mounts. I sighted it in for 225 Nosler Partitions using the scope, and I sighted the irons in using Nosler 250 Partitions.

    Overall, a very handy combination.
