Gentlemen, I have a Springfield Armory M1A scout and am trying to find a scope with a 8-9" extended eye relief.  I would prefer a 2-7 or 3-9 for whitetail hunting.  I've searched the Leupold and know they have a 2.5 power with the correct eye relief.  Anything else on the market or do I scrap yhis idea and go with a bolt gun?

they make a 2-7 and 1.5-6.  
I've not used one, but know 2 guys who have them on M1A's.  They like them pretty well.

I've had the Leupold 2.5X Scout scope (mounted on a Swiss K31) and it was fine for hunting out to 200-250 yards or so. I'd take a look at the Leatherwoods if you want a variable. Pistol scopes usually have parallax set much shorter so that might not work well with the M1A.
