I hope this is in the right place. Can I use this scope on a .303 hunting rifle? If I can is this scope any good?

Possibly. The big problem is that the Omegas are VERY short scopes, with little ring mounting area. This can be a problem on even a short action rifle with 2 piece mounts. They're designed for black powder rifles that have extremely short action lengths when compared to a regular bolt action.

It's basically a short Nikon Buckmaster with some internal changes to optimize it for hard recoiling blackpowder rifles. It has extremely long eye relief, around 5". It does this at the cost of reducing field of view, which is narrower than would be normal for a scope of its magnification.
It does however have clear optics, very reliable turrets, and is a durable scope. I recommend looking through one before you decide to purchase one.
