+1 for the Zeiss Conquest. Also, Warne rings are a good product. The Leupold VX III line is good as well.

what i am thinking is that i am going to use this rifle to hunt big game with but i also want to shoot something whearth it be paper or something alive at grate distances like 800 yards or so
i just want to be able to use all the potential this rifle has
Learn how to shoot. A 6+32x?? is way to much for a hunter. Most of your game, if you ever hunt w/ it will be within 400 yards. A 10x will make it look like you target is at 40 yards. So a 3-12 is more then enough. Even if you ran it out to 500 yards, no big deal.

Not a big fan of leupold. Zeiss make good scopes but both would not be my 1st choice.

What you ask leaves way to many questions. Are you hunting Grizzley in the woods, or Elk on the Tundra?? Just no simple answer. If I were to build my rifle in 9.3x62, it would have a side mount and irons. That gives flexibility. Scope would be a 2-7x, no more. It is hunting. That rifle was intended to kill something hunting you.

Nice zeiss optics. I had great deal while purchasing my favorite scope for digiscoping with Eurooptic.com. Here you may get more optical product with your budgeted price. It would be a fantastic visit if you can.

Ive been running a Burris FFII scope with a Leupold one piece base and Leupold rings on my 30-06 for many years. Never had a problem with my zero and the scope has held up to some abuse over the years like a champ.

Get quality the first time out and 90% of the time you will never have to worry about it again.

Who knows anything about the Burris eliminator or vortex viper?

Default 338 Looong shot

Shotshell, 800 yds is fine for targets, I'll bet that 338 will group them in a ft pattern. But if hunting anything but the big bears, someone has given you bad advice and you are seriously overgunned. Oh well, you're going in the direction of being totally overscoped. I guess that makes it a well-matched setup, after all.
We all make mistakes. JPatterson thinks we have elk on our tundra!
Search for "Alberta Outdoorsmen forum" -Elk hunt , the real knowledge of trappers & guides will interest you.

I have not tried the Viper, but have a couple different vortex scopes. No complaints at all with any of them.
