I really liked the sightron but the place where I've purchased the rifle doesn't sell sightron. If I buy the rifle and scope from them, they're going to throw in a bi-pod and some ammo. So it's in my interest to purchase a scope they can order in or stock.
I'm now pretty much decided on a Vortex Viper PST 4-16x50 SFP. One of the gentlemen at the store does a lot of long range competition shooting and he agrees with me that it'll be the best choice for me for what I want to use it for. Nothing against you hunters but some of the more high end/more expensive scopes have more features for people using them for more than just long distance shooting and since I'll not be hunting, the Vortex will suit my needs just fine. The guy is actually ordering one for himself. I think I'll be putting my order in this weekend for the scope and with all hopes it'll be here by the time my rifle arrives. I'm looking at an April arrival of the rifle. I can't wait!! I fell in love with the BAS/10 in a .308 when I fired it at a range during an open house. The price tag was more than reasonable for how good of a gun it is. I did extensive research about it before deciding to order it.
After a lot of research I feel the Vortex will suit my needs and for 750.00 I can't go wrong. I am very grateful for all the help everyone has provided me and the advice I was given by all those who gave it. I appreciate you taking the time to explain things I was unsure about and actually providing useful info. I was skeptical about joining a forum and asking newb questions because on the motorcycle forum(s) I'm on there are a lot of people to like to make fun of newbs when they ask questions that experienced people feel should be common sense.
