Mounting a scope

I just got a brandnew rem 700 xcr and I was just wondering what I need to mount a scope as far as mounts go. I won a scope a few years back It's a mark 3 it came with the rings.

Welcome aboard Thumbs up
If your rings have Allen screws, the right size wrench, If screws ,make sure you have a good screwdriver the proper size as you're going to want thing good and tight.
Do you know The make & style of rings. Are there bases on your rifle? If you're getting another scope, post details as some scopes require higher rings..

Nice rifle to win Thumbs up

There are so many good scopes out there.Leupold seems to be preferred choice. Personaly I like Bushnell
You should buy the best scope you can afford. Variable power scopes like 3-9 covers the whole range of shooting conditions you will/could encounter. others prefer a fixed power such as 4 X.
I guess the question is, what price range are you comfortably with and what currency , US, Canadian ,etc.

Mounting a scope

There are literally hundreds of scopes from dozens of manufacturers that will work for you. The determining facors will be what you want/need and how much you want to spend. You can get something that will suit your needs for anywhere between $200 and $2000.

However, optics, whether we are talking about scopes or binoculars, are something you should buy the best you can afford.

There is lots of junk out there as well, so some of the cheap "good deals" are not such a good deal.

Do yourself a favor and go to a big store with lots of selection and check out the different makes. Look through the different scopes and compare the clarity of the optics, features and prices, then decide what suits your needs and budget.
