I've got to do some scope swapping and could use some advice/help.
Scopes:
Bushnell 3200 3-9x40
Springfield 6X40 with RF out to 700 or 800 yards
Leupold 3.5-10X40 Vari-X III
Leupold 3.5-10X50 Vari-X III
Leupold 4-14X40 Vari-X III
Rifles:
Steyr SSG 69
Built M1A-Blueprinted, stress relieved, specisl contour douglas, heavier stock, trick everything
Heavy Model 70 Classic3 00WM, 26" Broughton, Mcswirley, Blueprinted


I'm just a paper-punching, long range elk hunting kinda guy, with a little bit of nice stuff. Not an operator, not on a team, probably not even an average shot, but would like to make the best use of my gear.
Thanks

Did you put a Karsten cheekpiece on your M1a?  What scope mount did you go with on the M1a.  I really like open sights on these but a low power scope might be good.
 
Steyr SSG-69  --- I would wait until the variable super sniper comes out and put that on it.
 
Model 70 - I would put the Leu 4.5-14x40 VXIII on that.

My old tired eyes demand a scope on just about everything. My M1A would be wasted on me past 100 yards without an optic. I've got both a Smith Enterprises and a 3rd gen Springfield see-through mount for it.
