I have a Ruger 77 Ultra Light with a Luepold V II 1-4 and a Rem. 742 Carbine with a Williams peep sight. Both are used for northeast whitetail hunting.

I currently have a Sightron 4X16 with mildots on my .308; which is a Remington 700 with a HS Precision T/S stock and a carbon fiber sleeved Shilen 1:12 Select Match. Most of its use has been punching paper out to 500 yards, although I did shoot one coyote with it (on the way back from the range) and one elk with it last November (just so I could say this dog could hunt). Wonderful "high confidence" rifle.

I have a Leupold Vari X III in 2.5 x 8. I use my Remington VLS for anything from deer up.Love it.

A Zeiss 3-12 x 56 with a fat three post reticle. 30 mm tube.
Works great for everything but I made the choice because of the exellent low light performance.
Can also recommend the nightforce line of scopes. Almost as good as Zeiss I think.

I had the Simmons Aetec on my 308. It did the job without any problems.

I am a fan of the .308 caliber (7.62 NATO), and currently have 3. #1 is a Ruger 77II sporter with a 22" barrel. I have a Nikon Titanium 3.5-10 shooting 165 grain Nosler Partitions at 2700 fps at deer out to 300 yards, or further if I have to, and have a good rest. This rifle has a Bell and Carlson composite stock that looks like grade 3 walnut. I mostly use this rifle in Maine. #2 is a Ruger 77II compact with a Nikon Monarch 3-9, shooting 150 grain Noslers, mostly for deer in Maine and Virginia. #3 is a new Remington 7400 parkerized, with another Nikon Monarch 3-9. I have not fired it yet, but plan to work up some 150 grain Nosler loads and 130 grain Barnes TSX loads to try. This may end up as my wife's gun for hunting from a stand.

I guess I fall in with a lot of the others----Leupolds rank high with me, on my .308 as well as on most of my other rifles. There are other good scopes out there too. Just my personal favorites---

Ok so I have to be different. Got a Howa in a BC stock around 20 years ago, It has a Nikon 4x monarch sitting on it, and I would feel comfertable (ok so I can't spell) out to 250 or so the furthest I've ever shot a deer is at 125 steps, I hunt the thick, enjoy up close and personal
