I would go with lever if just hunting deer . I live in Maine from tree stand scopes are great but most shoots are 30 yards to 50 if not 30 feet . And if your in thick stuff scope could cause an issue . The second point is I can get a lot of ammo out of my 30 30 so I get two shoots at a running deer should I miss the first time. But if you plan on hunting moose or bear I would go for 3006. I use 30 30 and 32 win special with peep sights on the ground 3006 in tree stand but only have 4x scope . Just my thoughts hate trying to find game threw scope harder if there moving Good luck Let us know what you go with
