     I just purchased a Classic STEYR MANNLICHER 1/2 stock in the 308 WIN. I cannot decide which scope I should use. I have narrowed it down to 2. The 1.5-6x42 pro hunter 30mm or the 2.5-10x42 pro hunter 30mm by Swarovski with the 4a rectial. The most of my shooting will be in the 50 meters to 300 meters range. Also I need information on the mounts that are apporiate for this.

Thank You Very much,

Wlk8j.

Both will work fine.  I would go with the 2.5-10x42 for the extra versatility.  I say this knowing full well that I rarely go higher then 6X, but it is nice to have the higher magnification when you need it.

i ditto ranburr, while i never use any more than 4x for big game hunting out to 500 yards, but for sighting in accurate enough to shoot 500 yards, i want the extra mag, so the same applies for sighting for shooting at 300.
