I originally purchased my Ruger Gunsite Scout rifle to mount a scout style scope on it. After I've received and shot it, I've changed my mind. I want to add a traditional style scope.
Specifically, this is the one I purchased: http://grabagun.com/ruger-6830-m77gs-308-gunst-sct-mtblk.html
It only weighs 6 1/4 pounds, and the muzzle brake makes recoil very manageable, but I don't want to lose the portability of it by adding a scope that's hard to carry or use while walking about. I'd like to keep it in the 1-4x or 3-7x type scopes, and I'd like to keep it under $300. I know you get what you pay for. But my budget dictates what I pay for, and my budget says under $300.
What do you think?
