I have just retuned to shooting after a number of years.  I have ordered a Ruger No.1A Light Sporter in 303Brit.  I have an older Leupold M8 2.5X20 gloss scope from the late 70's or early 80's mounted on my stored moose rifle, 444 Marlin.  What scope do I have compared to todays lineup?
The Scope is mint and I'm wondering if it is dated technology.  To be honest it was a great hunting scope on the Marlin. 
I'm considering mounting it to the Ruger and I'm sure I'll need offset rings if it will even fit.  I can find only 2 offset rings, Leupold and Ruger.  The Rugers are free but the Leupolds seem to be much more attractive. 
In time the rifle will be rigged as an African stalking rifle with either a tang sight, express sight or a Zeiss Eruo 30mm DG scope when money allows (at least 18 months).  Until then it would be nice to do load development and such with a scope.
