Good Choice?

Aloha SChunt,
On your scope selection, I personally try to get the biggest objective lens possible. The larger the objective, the more light the scope can gather and the brighter it is. The negative side is the larger objective may require the scope to be mounted higher and could mess up how the rifle fits you.

Good luck on your new rifle - I'm jealous!
