I am going to purchase a Kimber 84M Varminter in .204 Ruger for general small varmints/plinking/etc. and am trying to decide on the best scope.  This gun will be a carry gun with ocassional bi-pod/bench use.  I am looking at the Nikon Buckmaster in 4.5x14x40 w/bdc or 6x18x40 w/bdc and the Burris Fullfield II 4.5x14x42 balistic plex with the spotting scope package (pretty good deal).  With the Burris I will need to go with high rings and probably medium with the Nikon.

 

Anybody out there with this gun?  What would you recomend?

 

I am new to rifles but have done a lot of research.  This site is excellent!

Can't go wrong with a Fullfield II.

Thanks for the replies Cheaptrick and Koshkin.  The Fullfield is my leading choice except I can get a little lower mount with the Nikon.  Not sure.  Probably won't matter that much if I shoot well.  I used to shoot the eyes out of squirrel with a high powered pellet and no scope so I am hopeful.Evil smile

I have the exact same burris scope and mounted it on my ruger 25-.06 with medium rings and that works just fine.  Not sure if that will help your decision at all.
