I really like the Howa 1500 line of bolt action rifles. I have one in .308, very good shooter. All I know about Konus scopes is that they are low end.
What you wrote about the scope in question doesn't give quite enough information. A scope usually has number like 3-9X40 or something to that effect. This is a variable magnification scope that ranges from 3 times magnification to 9 times. The last number is the objective size, the end of the scope that brings in the light, measured in milimeters. A larger objective in comparable scopes will bring in more light. A larger objective in a really cheap scope may not mean very much.
Mildot is the type of reticle the scope has. It is graduated in mils for windage and elevation. They can be very useful for ranging and figuring hold-off if you become well practiced with them. I am not well practiced.
Maybe someone who knows Konus scopes will chime in. Good luck.
