I guess the fact that i"m not sure of what range I might get to shoot is the primary reason for getting the scope. I am fortunate enough to be going on a rifle trip to Missouri in Nov for the opening 3 days of rifle season. Don't know what I might run into but I want to give myself the best possible chance although probably 350 or 400 yds is probably my limit. (self imposed)
I'll be using my Rem 700 in 7mm mag with Hornady Customs, 154 gr SST interlock which should do the job. I know one thing, I love to hunt in Missouri because you never know what might show up!
