i am for sure going to get the .204 in the rem 700 sps varmint i really like that one. what is the max power scope i should get for this gun...
I have two Remington 700 with Leupold VX-111 4.5-14x40 both identical the reason for this is my wife took my first one, we just got our third one for my oldest son it is a savage in .204 I think I will put a Burris on that one, haven't really looked at them yet, I shopped around for a while before I bought the 4.5-14x40 it seemed like the perfect complement for the 700 and has been more than enough scope, I paid 500.00 a piece for the Leupold's through a good gun dealer friend he said they go for around 600.00 so that made me feel a little better, I blast all kinds of critters with mine and do a lot of walking around so I opted out of the traditional 1000 yard bench rest look of today's varmit guns and went with a 40mm obj it sucks plenty of light for varmits in the evening

hey rick rem thanks a lot i have looked at the Leupold VX-111 4.5-14x40 and i like them but i was looking at the cabelas book and i saw that the Alaskan guide premium riflescopes are 359 for the 6x20-40 and 319 for the 4x12-40, i was thinking about ordering one and seeing how i like that, since i have 2 pairs of their binos and like them. i thought maybe it be a good idea to go with the 4x12 but im not sure. any thoughts?

It's really just a matter of personal preference, I like to stay with the Leupold and Burris, in the world of glass you pretty much get what you pay for!!!

Default 204 ruger

I bought a savage model 12 last year, and have killed 15 hogs with the 32 grain v-max bullet. low recoil,you can watch the impact and distruction of this littel round. the hog's range from 100lbs to 325lbs. as flat as rhis round is,it is wind sensative.
