     I am thinking abut purchasing a IOR 2.5-10x42 30mm illuminated #4 for my Winchester Model 70 in 300 Win Mag.  Do you think this is good overall scope, even for hunts out West?  Can anyone please suggest good rings and bases?  What is the smallest size I can get for this scope?  Do you think i need to go up in magnification or objective size?  Gun will be used primarily for whitetail hunting in PA and other states.  Please reply ASAP!Cool

I think it would be a great choice and it only weighs 17 oz.   By today's standards it's a "lightweight " ....well, kind of...
 
I would love to have one.   I don't think you'll ever need more than 10X unless you're gonna shoot prairie dogs with your 300 Mag!!  Shocked

You'll be pleased with the glass.


On rings, if Talley makes a ring for your set-up - Model 70, 30mm - I'd buy Talley.  I have had great success with Talley and take them over anything else for hunting rifles.  They are light-weight, very sturdy, and very well made.
Warne makes good rings too.

I'd avoid anything with a dove-tail as they are more prone to failure - at least what I've seen.

Ditto on the Talley rings.  I've been very pleased with their stuff.

Thanks for the replies.  I also have used Talley in the past and had awesome results.  I guess I should just stay with what i know worksBig Smile

Is it FFP or RFP?

Your hunting deer in PA, I use my 300WSM model 70 with a 3-12x42 Sightron Big Sky.The scope is super clear and has a coating similar to the Bushnell elite scopes which prevents it from fogging.

I use Warne QD rings and bases.  I like them.  Not as expensive as the Talleys, but I have to say I've been very happy with them.

I believe the hunting scope is RFP. I'm not sure it would make much difference anyway with a 4A reticle. The tactical models appear to come in either flavor.
