Hi everyone, This question is to help a friend out. He was given a Sako .300 win mag in payment for some contracting work and for starters the rifle did not comewith the scope rings, are Sako rings the only rings you would use ? Second question is, what scope would you reccomend ? The rifle will possibly be used to go for elk out west. Thank you for any help on this.
Leupold 2.5-8x or 3-9. Keep the weight down for hunting out west. I have shot elk at past 300 yards...they are HUGE animals. I have killed them without ever having to have my scope up higher than 4x. The longest one at over 300 I shot with my scope all the way down at 2.5 power. All on self guided public land hunts in Colorado
