I just got my son a Savage M11 youth 7mm-08 and need to replace the scope that came with it.  My first question is what type of scope would you get for a child, he is already practicing with irons on his 10/22 and probably will not graduate to the 7mm-08 for a couple more years, he is eight.  My first thought was something in the 2-7 or 2-8 range as most shots will be 100 yards or less and he would have a large field of view.  The I thought of getting him a fixed 4x for simplicity.  For those of you who have gone through this, what would you recommend?  Budget is $400-500 and this rifle will be used for hunting and teaching him.

Zeiss conquest 3-9x 40 while you can still get them for $450 .I set my 11 yr old grand-son up with a SWFA SS 3-9[$600] on his 7mm-08 & 3 months later he got a 240lb Russian boar.Dropped him on 1 shot at 85yds.OK it was a semi canned hunt but the look on his face was worth a million bucks!
