Welcome Mike. What gun do you use at the moment and what type of game are you hunting? I like the .308. I hunt deer and pig and my .308 does a wonderful job. I use an over under scope, open site combo for a couple of reasons. One is the pretty dense jungle that I hunt in can be tricky when it comes to short range shots. Another is the beating my scope takes on the long and rugged hikes I often go on. So I like being able to fall back on my open sights if I need too. I have used a couple of different scopes in the past and my favorite so far Is the Nikon Buckmaster. It cost me around $300 with shipping and it has held it's zero very well.
