What are you mounting it on?

im mounting it on a model 70 30-06. i just bedded the stock and floated the barrel and lightened the trigger pull. now i want a good scope,with a great warranty, to last me the rest of my life.

I myself would go with Vortex or the Nikon.

The Leupold rifleman and the Redfield are much the same. I dislike Leupold lower end scopes and the cost is 80% name in them (YMMV).

My vortex a 4-12x40 as well is amazing it is as clear and as bright as optics costing 2 times as much. Plus with vortex if it breaks for any reason send it back and they will repair or replace it at no cost for the life of the product. No warranty cards to fill out no hassles nothing just send it back and they fix it or replace it.

i think i will just have to go to a gun shop and check out all the scopes that i mentioned and see which one i like the best. thanks for all the input. i guess i just have to make up my mind.
