Ok guys I'm having Bullberry build me a gun. Need advice on which scope and do I need a three ring mount or will two be good enough. Heres the stats on the gun:
15" - 7mm-08 - heavy varmint taper barrel - hanger system- medium grade forearm and grip- and trigger job-frame
Mainly used for hunting 200 yard shots and less. Thinking Burris or nikon.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    I think a Nikon Monarch in 2.5-10x 42 or 50 would fit your set up very well. The 42mm obj. is obviously a bit more compact but will still allow you have an excellent field of view and clear picture. I would also suggest the BDC reticle if you think you might be reaching out past 200 yards. You can go to, click on the Spot On logo upper right hand corner, this will take you to a site that will let you enter all your shooting data including your scope and give you corresponding distances for each BDC circle. My 11 year old took a doe at 323 yards last year using the BDC reticle. Takes all the guess work out of longer range shots. 
     We also have a Buckmaster 3-9x40 with a BDC reticle that would also serve your needs very well Joe.
Any questions drop me a PM.
