I just ordered a Browning X-bolt 7mm 08, now i need to put some glass on it, i will be using it for deer hunting in eastern Oregon, any suggestions would help, i really do not want to spend more than $500.00 on a new scope. Thanks

what is your typical distances?

What is your preference for retical?

Do you dial in elevation or hold over?

Got the same rifle in .308.  If you could still get them I'd suggest a Zeiss 2.5x8x32.  That's what I put on mine.  The Zeiss 3x9x40 is a bit oversized on a short action X-Bolt.  Might consider the Monarch 2x8x32 or a Leupy 2.5x8x36.  The Elite 4200 3x9x40 probably wouldn't be too big.  The Minox Z5 1.5x8x32 is also in your price range.

+1 with the Minox Z5 1.5 - 8 X 32. Also, the Sightron Big Sky scopes are very nice, and they have a climate control coating similar to the Bushy Rainguard. Although the Sightron SII Big Sky 3-9 x 36 has A.O., it's still a great little scope for general hunting purposes.

The MeoPro 3-9x42 is a good choice for a wide range of hunting choices.  You'll be able to keep a low profile on the gun with low or medium rings and the eye-relief of 3.75 inches is ideal for a 7mm 08.
Of course, the main attractions of any Meopta scope are going to be the light transmission, resolution and edge-to-edge clarity.

I had one of the Vortex Viper 2-7x32 closeout scopes on my X-Bolt 7mm-08 before a buddy bought the rifle.  I thought that was a perfect little setup.  The eye relief and mounting distances were just right for me too.  I used Leupold mounts and low rings, and had plenty of clearance.  I would still have that rifle and still have the Viper on it if it fit me better and/or my friend hadn't fallen in love with the rifle. 

Also, that rifle shot incredibly small groups with cheap Prvi Partizan 140 grain ammo.  You might want to try some...

Just picked up a Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40, and as soon as i get my rifle, which should be either Tuesday or Wednesday, i will be mounting it and hopefully getting to the range soon to see how it works. Thanks for all the input

I had a 3-9X40 conquest on a Rem model 7  7-08 and it worked well for years.  I must say, I like the look of the little 2-7X32 Viper on it now better.  Just feels right.
