i have just purchased my first rifle. a Tikka T3 lite chamberd in .308 Win. the gun is going to be predominately used for target shooting, however it will see a decent amount of hunting use. eventually, when i become a better shooter, i would like to (attempt) to shoot to the .308's capabilities-long range shooting. to do so, i need a quality scope. any recomendations on how powerful (and expensive) of a scope i should be looking at? also, this may sound silly or unpracticle, but ive been doing some research and spoken to a few friends, and a rifle is usually zero'd to a certain distance, and if you want to shoot shorter, or longer you either have to guess for bullet drop or re-zero for a new distance. is it worth getting a distance adjustable scope where you can figure out at what values to have the verticle and horizontale adjustment knobs. cheers, Nik.
