RE: Burris Scopes
I would go with a 3-9 or a 2.5-10 for a few reasons. Close shots you will want the lower power and the lower the power the more light the scope will let in. If you have a 4-16 it will be harder to shoot in low light. The 3-9 and 2.5-10 don't have adjustible objectives, they are always clear wheather your target is 100 yards or 300 yards. 9 or 10 power is more than enough power to make a good shot on a deer or elk at 300 or 400 yards assuming that you and your gun are capable of a good shot that far.
I would go with a Bushnell Elite 4200 in 2.5-10x40. They are very clear and let in 95% of available light, the rain guard feature is very nice, you can breath on it and fog it up and still see through it to shoot. I would also recommend Butler Creek flip open scope caps.
