Last night I went to Gander Mountain and had my Nikon scope put on my Remington 750 and also had it bore sighted. I used Leupold mounts to secure it to the rifle. The gunsmith at Gander Mountain did a fantastic job and I believe this scope will bring years of service.
I have never used a Nikon scope before, but this particular 3x9 50mm objective received good reviews and for the purchase price I don't believe I could go wrong.
I also purchased some shells, Remington 150 grain express core lokt, PSP. This should definitely do the job on whitetails in Missouri this fall. I am really looking forward to taking this rifle out to the range and seeing how it will group.
The plan is to sight it in at 1 1/4 inches high at 100 yards. I am planning on a maximum shot range of 200 yards, so I should be good to go if it all works out.
Now I am thinking about what backup rifle to take. It's between a 243 caliber and a 30-06 caliber... any ideas which would be better? I am really trying to minimize recoil but have sufficient knockdown power. That's why my first choice is the 270 semi automatic.
What type of rifle set up are you using?
