I would like to know what you would recommend for this rifle.  It is 308 caliber, and I will use it for hunting pigs and deer.  I would like something in 2-7X with illumination. 

Thanks

Update:  I ditched the x-bolt 308 which was right hand, and ordered a left hand version in 7mm-08.  

I was planning on putting the  Swarovski Z6i 1.75-10, which I already on this rifle.  Is that a good combo?

I was reading reviews on the Leupold VX-6 scopes here on this forum, and everyone seems to be favorably impressed.

You have the Z6?

Uh, yeah, that would be an ideal scope for just about any hunting rifle.

The Z6i is TOP SHELF. Use it by all means.

Kind of like asking if a Ferrari would be a good car to drive on the Autobahn!

You guys are too funny.  My name is Charles too, and I thought you were talking to me at first.  

I know the Swaro is a Ferrari, but what I was referring to was the power range.  I know it will work great.  I was playing with it today, and it is really an awesome scope.
