I recently purchased a Savage 10fp in .308 I don't know what kind of scope to buy for it. My budget is up to $500. Im pretty much going to be shooting up to 600 yards but would like a scope that would go as far as a 1000. If anyone can help me with some info I would appreciate it Thanks!

The guy at my gun shop had a Savage 10fp left handed rifle in .308 and hits out to 1000 yards with it on steel targets. I also put one on my gun and it works great although i am not good enough to hit that far. It is a real nice scope and it can be set up in MOA instead of worrying about clicks if you make your blastic chart that way. It is a mil dot scope and if you get the SWFA mid mounts you have plenty of elevation adjustments to hit 1000 yards. If you have any questions on this scope or how to use it feel free to PM me.

There are some good Millett, Bushnell, Nikon, Weaver and a few Leupolds in your range. You spend $450-$500+ on one of those brands and you should be happy. Look into them and see which one you like best- zoom, objective size, reticle, etc

I've been headed towards the SWFA SS but some people that I have spoke to say its better to not have a fixed zoom.

I put a Leupold VX-II 3-9x40 on mine, but your budget should allow for a VX-III and you could probably get their CDS system installed at the same time.

It is all preference. That is a great scope for the price. Definitely a very good choice. Fixed 10x mag is bad *** :D

You can get a good Nikon Monarch variable power in that price range. Very clear glass.

Shop around, and read the reviews at Midwayusa to see what other people have bought and liked.

I would pick the Nikon Monarch 4-16x42 for that price range. Fantastic scope. Glass is brighter and clearer than my Leupold VXII's. I like the SWFA Super Sniper also but not fond of fixed zoom.

Me too. But, there is nothing impressive about it - I think the Nikon scopes have much clearer glass for not much more $$. As for fixed vs. zoom, if you are just starting to use a mil-dot scope and new to long range shooting, fixed is less confusing until you get some experience. I would recommend getting a Mil-Dot-Master too. http://www.mildot.com/

Check out the Sightron SII and SIII rifle scope.

Save some cash qnd get the Bushnell 3200 10x. You can even get it with Mil adjustments now. Under 500 bucks there aren't many really good options that offer more than the cheaper options. The problem with the Monarchs, and most of the higher magnification options under 500 (except the questionably reliable falcons, wonder optics, etc.) is that they lack the internal adjustment needed to get a 308 out to 1k and maintain a 100 yard zero. Better is to get something reliable like the Bushnell, spend the money on trigger time instead, and really learn how to shoot at distance. Upgrade when you feel truly limited by your equipment.

Oak Tree messed up my order on the savage. So I decided to save some money and went with a Remington 700 sps tactical. Anyone have any info on the MILLETT 6-25x56? Either Tactical or Buck Gold models. Thanks to everyone for their information!

Unless you're an expert in math and can calculate your distance using mil dots in light speed, then I would go for the zoom scopes. :)

Love those scopes! Also, in that range, are Hawke Sidewinder 30's (I've got 2) both in 6-24x56 one with their SR12 and the other with 10x Mil

^^^^^ I would agree go and check out the Hawke. The review I have here is for the Hawke 4.5-14x42 Sidewinder Tactical. I have a box test done with one on my Remmy SPS Tactical with EGW 20MOA base and Warne mid rings.
