    I am looking at the Leupold M8 4x and Simmons gold medal.

    I have one of those on a 10 inch bull, .223 and love it. And I agree with stalkingbear - anything over 4X and you won't be able to see anything without a rest.

    My 2¢

    I agree, that is why I am leaning towards fixed power.

    Perhaps on my 30 Bellm that I can use for deer in IL I may opt for a variable as this caliber is accurate out to 150 yards.

    I bet you would get more responses to your many questions if you just went over to the "Introductions" thread and told us a little about yourself! :)

    intro

    I have been on the forum for over a year and had done this once but just did it again. Thanks for the reminder.

    Burris 3-12x that is what I would go for.

    Scope

    I don't know if I would need all that power and doubt I could get a clear sight picture at high magnification unless shooting from a rest. I do have some Burris scopes with posi lock and like them.

    I using a T/C 2 X 7 on my 15" Encore .308 barrel. Works just fine.
