I just picked up a Savage 12 FV in .223 .  For some reason it is more confusing for me deciding on which scope to put on it then on my AR-15's .  Fixed power, variable power, another Aetec????  Since the range here is only 100 yards and I can only shoot paper should I go with something like a Burris FF2 with the free spotting scope or plan ahead and consider a fixed power like the SS 10X or the Bushnell 3200 10X?  Eventually I would like to shoot little rodents with it.  Any assistance is greatly appreciated...

Burris FFII is the most versatile scope that you mention.

I think with the versatility of a .223 and your future plans to shoot little rodents that a variable would be the way to go and right now the Burris Fullfield II 3-9x40 with the free spotter is one of our best deals.  The Ballistic Plex is a lot of fun and extremely accurate with practice.

How do you like it?  Fixed power scopes can take some time to get used to.

 

SS scopes look really good on ARs on don't they?

It's a really nice scope.  This is my first fixed power scope.  Hopefully my Ferrel base will get here thursday or friday so I can mount it on my 12FV and take her to the range, zero it, and then try out some of my handloads.  If I like it I might get one for a AR in 6.8mm SPC that I am in the process of building.
