After a few years of us getting accustomed to our .22, we're going to get our "second guns" next weekend: A Mossberg shotgun for her, and I'm going to go get the Savage Arms 11/111 FCNS I've have my eye on for quite a while (in .308)
Now, I'm pretty much settled on the gun, but I'm not sure about the scope. I'm comfortable spending around $200-250 on the scope for this rifle. Obviously I want something that can stand up to the recoil of the firearm. I would also like to find one that is a variable that goes past 9x, as I would like this to be my "100 yard" rifle.
I'm not too terribly particular about the brand or aesthetics of the scope; I'm kind of more worried about functionality rather than if it will look pretty on my rifle.
Anyway, input/suggestions would we welcome.
