I just bought a Browning BLR in .308 win. While it has great iron sights my eyes tell me I need to put a scope on it. Since it will be nearly impossible to put a scope base that allows the use of the iron sights, I am thinking a low power scope. I kind of like the Leupold VX-Hot. It is a 1 - 4 power. This will be the first time I have put a scope on a high power hunting rifle. Anybody have any opinions or suggestions? I always assumed I would want a 3 - 9, but I'm not so sure anymore. Oh, I will be hunting in both woodlands and open land. Certainly no shots over 300 yards and probably less than that.
