Shootin, I hate to seem obnoxious. But you have fallen victim to the normal situation. You should spend the best money possible on optics and then buy a rifle to go with it. You can not shoot well what you can not see! The Nikon is good advise which was mentioned. And I like Nikon and they are good, but you need to get a good scope. Do not skimp on the scope you get! You have a good rifle and it and you deserves a good quality scope! And the bottom line how many scopes are you going to purchase for it! Logically ONE! So get the best you can buy. I am an avid Leupold Scope man but never has one let me down! More money yes! than others but more quality and more reliable/ YES!
