I am purchasing a new rifle next week (Ruger .308 Hawkeye) and I am trying to find a scope to fit.
I have searched the forums and have found a ton of good information. I just want to check my decisions with the specific rifle I will be mounting on.
I am looking at either 3X9X40 in Leupold VX-I ($200), Nikon Monarch ($250), or Nikon Prostaff ($150).
I am leaning towards the Leupold, although I've heard some like the Monarch better. I think I'd rather buy the Leupold than the Prostaff. On the other hand, it might not be bad for a budget scope.
And for rings, go for tilleys?
Thanks for the help!
