How much did the gun cost you ?

Because they all shoot around 1" MOA.

It's the optics that makes it easier & practice, practice, practice !

I am really new to a site like this so I have a question I was hoping someone could help me with. How do you post a subject like this to get feed back from? Thanks to anyone who can direct me the route I need to take.

Here's a scope i forgot to mention and is my all time favorite the Sightron2 series in 3-9x42. You buy that scope and you will have all you would ever need in a rugged,quality dependable set up for that .06 of yours. Just to throw this out to you. 165 grains is the most popular for the 30.06 for all around deer and black bear hunting. At lest thats what most use here in the Vermont area. Hope I have been of help to you and enjoy this forum. The guys here are skilled and been around for a long time. Take care.

It's a browning x bolt hunter 30-06. I paid about 800$ with taxes. I'm thinking I may go with the leupold but I'm not sure. Watching some scopes on eBay now.

You know what your doing. You are in the right spot w/ Leupold. They don't make junk thats for sure. Back in the day when i hunted w/ center fire i owned a 4-12x40 on a .270 smith&wesson nice set up. I've owned the .06 to but in the 700 BDL model. You have a good caliber there. It's the most versitale cartridge going. You can load from a 90 grain bullet up to 220 grain. Keep us posted in what scope you end up getting. kevin

Some will say; spend at least as much on your scope as what you spent on your rifle (me too - most modern rifles shoot 1" MOA !).

That Burris Fullfield for 115$ seems like a pretty good deal. I may do that if I dont win a Buckmaster, Redfield or Leupold off ebay.
