Scope Suggestions for My New Sako

Hey Fellas,

I just picked up a new Sako A7 in a .308 and am curious on what you guys think would be a good scope. On my rifles right now I have a leupold vx-2, a bushnell banner and a couple Nikon Pro staffs. Although I like the pro staffs, I feel like I need to put a better scope on this rifle. My intent is to use this as my primary big game rifle but would also love to use it for coyote hunting at night. Furthermore, I would like this gun to have long range capabilities. Any suggestions (brand, model, power, and objective)are much appreciated

For those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They will soar on wings as eagles..

Re: Scope Suggestions for My New Sako

I bought a .308 beater last year and put a Burris Fullfield E1 on it. I like the scope. Could be clearer.

I have a Sako Finn Bear and have a Leupold M8 on it.

I like the new Zeiss Conquest. Also like the Trijicons. If it were me I'd be getting a Trijicon for your nice new A7. That'll be my next scope. But they are $750ish.

Re: Scope Suggestions for My New Sako

good question- if I could stay under $400 that would be best.

Leupold's VX-R line with the red fiber optic is awesome. I have one in a 2-7 and my daughter has one in the 1.25-4. The fiber optic draws your eye making target acquisition very fast. Very bright also. With the Cabela's special pricing, the cost should be close to 4 bills.

Bushnell Elite series, absolutely can't go wrong and the rain guard does work! I collect Sakos and they all have Elites. A great gun deserves a great scope!
