alright guys this is my first post and i'm not as thouroughly educated as i probably need to be but, im active duty military and im looking for a real good target rifle and scope for my wife and i to go target shooting with. I have decided to go with the new savage 12F T/R even though it is more rifle than ill probably ever need. I like the fact that i can use it to shoot 1000 yrds with resonable accuracy. which now leaves me to optics.... I'm looking for the best scope to mount on this rifle without getting into the real high dollar pieces, I've been most commonly refered to the leupold vari-x III series but dont know if this is my best choice for the application. The rifle will be completely for target shooting so weight, durability or any other field related issue is erelivant. any information, options or opinions you can offer will be greatly appreciated
 
Thanks

Welcome to The OT and thank you for your service!
 
What's your budget look like for the scope, rings and mounts?
Your going to be shooting out to 1000 yards with this rifle?

I got about 600 to spend for the scope rings and mounts and doubt that i will be shooting 1000 yrds on a regular basis, but want to have the ability to with resonable easy. More than likely ill be shooting between 300 and 600 yrds. only because thats what the local ranges offer

Nikon is the way to go in my opinion.

Get the Super Sniper 16X.  IMHO it's the perfect target scope.  They're $300.  You can sppend the other $300 on ammo.  :-)

Nikon BuckMaster 6-18X40 with side focus parallax adjustment, target knobs, & the BDC reticle for $359.95 @ swfa (riflescopes.com) can't be beat on the the Model 12 FTR man. I shoot Savage rifles topped with Nikon optics and they are far better than what I shot in the Army. That morphadite remwinshilen with leupold 10X can't EVEN show against my Model 10FP with the Mnarch Gold 2.5-10 on top. Nikon also has a Lifetime Warranty with NQA if you don't like it, send it back and take your money elsewhere.. Just my 2 cents worth.

I too am a fan of the BDC reticle, but would probably opt for a Nikoplex for target shooting. Good recommendation though, none the less.
 
Scout, are you saying if you don't like your Nikon, you can box it up, send it back to the factory and get your money back?

I own a Leupold FX-III 25x. I am happy with the scope for the 575 that I spent on it new.
