Scope for a .308?
« on: November 20, 2012, 10:07:10 AM »
I really don't know much about scopes, but since I'm about to buy a rifle in .308 (16" VEPR), I figure that it would be best to get a scope to use on it.  What do yall suggest?

I'm a scope newb but I like the Super Sniper 10x42 that came with my Savage .308 Doc sold me.
It gets great reviews as well, especially for being low priced (not the same as cheap):

How far am I shooting?  Well, I don't know.  I'd like the ability to reach out & touch someone if need be. I'm not even sure what the effective range is for this gun since I don't have it yet.

I shoot a 5.5-22 on mine, I've shot out to 800 with no issues... I know people say less is more but I just dial it back if I need be, and at anything over 300 I don't tend to dial it back... Just me. How much are you looking to spend?  I will recommend. Super sniper or a vortex viper... Both awesome scopes for the money.
