Well, after hunting this season with my 270, I have decidec to buy a 338win mag Tikka T3 Lite. I know the recoil will be harsh but I don't plan to spend hours at the range and want something lite to carry in the mountains and back pack hunts.
I am looking for opinions on scopes for this gun and caliber. I would like to stay under the 1000$ limit. I have Leupolds on all my other guns and have been happy with them.
would a 3x9 power be enough? I don't see myself shooting past 300 yards but want to be able to shhot out to 500 if needed.
