i just got a rem700 sps-v that needs to be hunting weapon first and long range shooter second. i dont have a ton of money to put into it right off the bat, so i plan on using a seekins base and rings to mount a small buckmaster 3-9x40 BDC on it. this will get me through this deer season and as funds allow, i will upgrade to a mcm stock and get a better scope for long range shooting. the buckmaster will then go on a 6.8 ar that needs a new scope badly. sound good? is there a better scope in that price range for this season? and suggestions on future scopes? i would love a NF3.5-15x50, but i dont see myself spending that much on a scope later on...

Save your money on the stock and get a BC. I had the A5 and that thing felt like holding a 2x4 that weighed 20 pounds.....I was much happier when I made the switch to BC..Anyway you will save a ton of money that you can now put into glass

well i wasn't necessarily going to get an a5, maybe an HTG or something similar made my manners which is a little bit less. 

im kind of scared to spend $600 right off the bat, not gonna lie. i feel like i could get by with the buckmaster this hunting season and save that $600 and put it down and then some for something more powerful and better. 

is the SS 3-9 better quality than falcons 4-14x44 ffp? those have caught my eye. maybe i should just get that to start with as an intro into using mils. is that falcon a mil/mil or mil/moa though? id rather stick with a mil/mil...

I'd look at the problem as "What is the least quality scope that you will be comfortable putting on the AR that will match the basic features of the scope you eventually end up with on the Remington?" In other words, if you set it as a goal to have a mil/mil FFP scope on your best rifle, you're going to want to have those same features on another rifle that you also use for practice.
