Default best scope for a M1 garand 30-06

A friend of mine just picked one up at a gun show and already ordered his scope mount but he wants to know what kind of scopewould be best. He has a price range of 150 to 250 and wants a scope to reach out to atleast 400 yards. Any ideas are appreciated.

Seems a shame to put a cheap scope on such a nice rifle.

I'm sure he would love to put a nice one on it but he isn't too high up on the money tree and spent most of his play money on the rifle.

My friend is almost sixty and his vision isn't quite what it used to be. He wants to shoot his garand and actually hit the target while doing so.

I would try to find an original scope or replica but I doubt that it is in the budget.

For the same reasons you would scope any other rifle.
