View Full Version : I need a scope for my savage.
I just got a savage 10-fcp and I am looking for a scope for her. It will be for target shooting and will go out to maybe 800 yards. I prefer turret style and like to keep it between 500 to 700 bucks. also what magnification is required for this kind of shooting?

i would take a good look at the vortex viper line. The magnification is completely up to you and your preference. on my two savages in .243 and .308 I have a 4x12 and a 6x24 respectively.

If it is a 308 and you would like to do Tactical or real world shooting like hunting I would say 15x would be great.
IF you are doing bench-rest or varmint hunting I would say 20x and up.
As for scope makers I would say Vortex, Weaver, Bushnell, and some Leupold would be a great way to go.
We sell a lot of optic lines if we can be of help feel free to ask.

Congratulations on your new toy!
Past 800 yards, you may want to consider an angled base, depending on the ballistics of your particular caliber.
