It kicks some...its a .270. Its close to slamming into my eye. That's why im looking into a new one. Any idea what I could sell that one for? That's how im gonna supplement the funds to get a new scope.

A used Tasco scope won't bring much.They're bottom shelf optics to begin with.
Just put it on a 22lr,if you have one.They work fine on rimfire rifles.

One thing that will make a world of difference with your Savage 110 would be put a 1pc Weaver/Picatinny rail on it.You'll also need rings that fit on the rail,but you will be able to set back a short length scope on your gun.
Long action rifles are difficult to mount short bodied scopes on without a rail mount.

If you have an older Savage with a flat rear receiver,you need this one-

If you have a new style that is round in the rear,you need this one-

I was thinking about doing that. Like I said before I had to get step rings and it still wasn't far enough. I was told my scope was a "compact" scope but when the guy held a Leupold VX-1 next to mine it was 1/4-1/2" longer is all. Still he insisted mine was a compact. Mind you he was trying to sell me said Leupold.

Do a little research some scopes work best with certain type of guns? Brand is just how much money you wanna spend on one. They all have a limited lifetime warranty

A weaver or "tac" style railing would make it easier I've never liked fixed position mounts they don't give you room for the custom fit. The only tasco scope I own is on my 22 and it's ok, I might catch flake for this but I like ncstar scopes and BSA I put a ncstar on my 17HMR 30mm tube mil dot lighted reticle finger adjustable turrents I paid like 120 for it I don't really need it but I like how it works for the price.
