Thank you sir, it was given to me so I thru it on actually not bad but I love my Burris scopes but have never used a tactical scope? Only used dots and reflex while in.You get what you pay for in glass. Never go cheap on: Barrel, trigger, optic. A solid 1-6x would be my choice... like a Vortex Razor.
Thank you sir! That was exactly my thinking, the wife like red dots and I really can’t see one being very precise out past 75yds at least to my standardsAny scope you would put on any other rifle is the best answer . I have ARs with red dots but not for deer hunting . 1-6 or 2-7 scopes are great for thick woods . If you want something that has a lighted reticle look at Cabela's 3 power fire bolt prism . I have one on a 300 bo and have no problem with * and armidelos out past 100 yds .

Thank you sir!What's your budget? I'd go LPVO over a red dot any day of the week.
I wouldn't go cheaper than this:

Great point and I couldn't agree more. After moving to mostly 50mm objectives on my hunting scopes, it truly does make a big difference in low light.One thing to note is that when it come to getting a shot in low light size matters.....if you intend to hunt until dark pick a model with a bigger objective lens......min of 40mm and probably max of 50mm in the PST Gen II lineup.
To take it one step farther, the exit pupil is objective lens size divided by magnification. Bigger is better up to about 7mm for dark conditions, 4mm works in daylight.The Vortex Viper PST 1-6 is a good scope for the $$. I have several of the original 1-4 versions that I use on service rifles in competition. Never had any issues, illuminated reticle is good, tracks well as I spin the knobs for elev and windage going 200 to 600 yards. One thing to note is that when it come to getting a shot in low light size matters.....if you intend to hunt until dark pick a model with a bigger objective lens......min of 40mm and probably max of 50mm in the PST Gen II lineup. I have seen some good reviews of the Vortex Crossfire II Hog Hunter. I have a 56mm S&B on a .270 Win deer rifle and its huge....but it probably gives me 10 extra minutes after sunset of being able to clearly see and that rifle was specifically intended for twilight hunting. That said, now that I have a 6.8 with a Thor LT on it I use that to hunt right up until the legal cutoff time.
Great point..... and the 3-10 x 56 on 4 power is pretty good....To take it one step farther, the exit pupil is objective lens size divided by magnification. Bigger is better up to about 7mm for dark conditions, 4mm works in daylight.
4 power through a 20mm objective is an exit pupil of 5mm, which is better than a 9 power through a 40mm objective (4.4mm), neither of which is as good as 10 power through a 56mm objective (5.6mm).
