Default Scope

Looking for a decent mildot scope for my 30-06 for around $400-$500. Range will be out to 500-600 yards.

What did you buy? I hope hope works, but I doubt it. Not sure what you want to do w/ the scope either. You have a short action scope on a long action rifle.

4-12 power should be plenty to shoot your 400-500yd requirement. And you can't go wrong with Leupold either.

Ya. The ballistic table is good for 500 yards which is about the farthest I can shoot. And not sure how its a short action scope either.

The 12.3" length and 5.6" of tube will make it difficult to mount on a long action.
You may find you can not get it set back far enough to see correctly. You will most likely need an extended front ring. It will set over the open portion of the receiver, other wise w/ standard rings the front bell may make it impossible to mount and see correctly. You may be able to find a base that is a complete rail, that would help, but could cause issue loading and ejecting.

O OK. Well the bolt clears the scope fine. Won't have a chance to sight in or anything anytime soon due to snow.

Why is that? Never had a problem with Leupold.
