Default New Guy Needs Gun And Scope Advice

I just started hunting October 08 and just joined the site this month(which I love). I live in the farmlands of NC so there are deer staring me in the face everytime I turn around. I have been shooting my friend's remington 700 30.06 and have had pretty good results. I dropped nine last season. Well I have two questions.

I was wondering if anyone has heard any good words about the new remington 700 xhr 30.06 or any 30.06 that is worth researching? It is in my price range and I definately want a 30.06. I always still hunt from a stand or a ladder(yes a ladder LOL) and never take shots past 300 yards.

Second, the gun that I have been borrowing has a 3x9x40 scope on it, which seems to be the standard from what I have read online. I am interested in getting the mueller 4x16x50 red dot reticular scope. Is this too much magnification for hunting white tail or could this help me further my range out past 300 yards when hunting on the farm?

Any help with either of these two questions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.
