I am thinking of putting a red dot sight on my marlin 1895 45-70. This rifle will be used for camp defense from bears and two legged vermin alike and will more likely be used for elk, deer, and black bear hunting in the timber. I am hoping to be able to hunt with it out to 150 yards. Maybe 200 with lots of practice. I have been looking at the burris fastfire 2 and the bushnell trophy 1x25 that is an aimpoint micro clone. I have used the bushnell on the same platform and it worked well at 100 yards. my idead behind the fastfire is more FOV less weight and the ability to possibly use my ghost ring sights through the lense should something happen to the red dot. Let me know what you guys think and i am more than open to any other suggestions you might have.
