cool, you will love the gun
what's legal hunting time where you are at?
stand or stalk hunting?
sounds like a 1.5-6x40 might be ideal

either would be fine, the latter would probably be a bit better in very low light
if you do the latter, a lot of people like a bolder reticle like a german #4

I just checked though the sameplist
Ziess Coquest 3-9x40 with the etched reticle
item # 10565
399
boom, done deal :)

I have a Nikon Monarch 2-8x32 on one of my 308s and it's a great little scope. Even with rings and bases you'll have change left over. I'd probably go with Talley low rings rather than the ones that came with the Tikka.

.............Both the above are great scopes for the dollar and should you ever venture into more open plains terrain sometime, where a 400-500 yard shot is needed, you`ll have more than adequate magnification.
 
Of the two, my pick for shorter ranged stand hunting and for your rifle would be the 2-8x32 Monarch.

well in that case, heck yeah
EP pricing definetely helps

I like the 2.5-10x42 as a good all around scope and recommend it to often

my dad wanted a new scope for his 22-250 and that's what he went with based on my recommendations.. he loves it
he can resolve .22 cal holes at 100 yards with 78 year old eyes

if you have a nice buck under the tree lines at 150 yards at last light, teh extra bit of magnification and low light capability of the larger objective will be appreciated

if you were going to to a lot of walking, I think the 2-8 might  be a better option

Give these a look        http://www.sightwonders.com/home.html    I have the Wonders Optical Tac. 4-14X50 on my .308 TIKKA Varment & it works very good. I haven't shot it past 600yds yet, but it should go to 1000 without any trouble.
