Hey all...

I have been poking around this forum for a while and I have found you guys to have great opinions, often submitted with terrific candor and sound reasoning.

So here it goes.

Recently got an RRA Varmint 24" w/EOP upper.

Going to be using it mainly on prairie dogs in the dakotas...at least that will be its first outting. In the future I would be interested in coyote and such.

Looking for suggestions on scopes.

I am willing to consider spending equal to what I spent on the rifle...around 1200...that is not to say that I need to spend that much...

That right there would be my first choice for a dogging scope!!  I have one on my 300 WM and if I didn't have my 22-250 outfitted for yote hunting (which I like the 3-12 range for), it would get one of these for doggin.
