Haven't bought either yet so open for suggestions on both. Looking at purchasing another deer rifle for myself and letting my wife shoot my Remington auto.270 with Simmons scope. I'm leaning towards another Remington or Browning, both bolt action. Are their only certain scopes that fit certain guns? I saw what looked like the same scope 3 or 4 different times when browsing  with only a different finish or weight. I've read to buy good rings, not cheap ones, do you buy seperately from scope. Do most scopes come with the lifetime warr. I keep hearing about or only top of the line. Most deer I've seen tend to wander out right as my Simmons goes out ( $150-$200 scope) Haven't missed with it yet but also don't know what I've missed by not seeing it??? Looking for an equivalant pair of binoculars also. Thanks for any postings.

If you are looking for a high quality rifle at a bargain price, I will say buy one of the Tikka T3's. This rifle you can not beat the quality you get for the price. it is guaranteed to shoot 1 inch groups at 100 yards from the factory- out of the box. The scope mounts this rifle uses is ingenious as well. As for a good scope choice I would say make your choice buy ensuring the scope you buy has a full life time warranty, has fully multicoated optics, and that the windage and elevation adjustments can be adjusted using your fingers and do not require a tool. As for binoculars make sure your choice has a life time warranty and fully multi-coated optics. The lifetime warrranty will ensure the highest quality.

How about a Remington 700 in .300 short mag?....great gun and caliber.  Most scopes are available with different reticles and in different finishes.  Different reticles are for different types of hunting or shooting.  If you are just hunting a standard plex style reticle will be fine.  Rings and bases are separate and Leupold makes good ones.  Most scopes today by reputable companies do have lifetime warranties.  Better optics and coatings will allow you to see better and brighter.  My best choice for you is a Weaver Grand Slam 3-10x40, the Remington in a short mag caliber, Leupold ring and bases and Pentax DCF HR II binoculars.
