Just purchased my first deer rifle. Bought a Remington 7mm magnum. Need some advice on a scope for this rifle. I've been told to stay away from the 50mm type scopes due to the fact the scopes sits so high above the bore.

Looking for a good quality all-around scope that has enough magnification with going to much. I probably will not be shooting past 200 yards, but there are places the shots could stretch to around 400 yards. I will not longer range shots at a deer for a good while yet.

This is what I have on my Winchester Model 70 in 30-06. I like this combination.

If you buy your scope in a gun shop, you can ask to mock-up the scope on your rifle (without tightening any screws down) and you can see how you like it before buying.
The gunshop may also mount the scope and bore-sight it for free.

This is a another very good reason to keep your local gun shop in business!

Hard to beat 3x9 for all around use. 50mm becomes important in the first and last 15 minutes of daylight. The Leupold MKIII or MKII line are good choices. 3.5x10 or 4x12 should be the max you'll need. Personally, I use a S&B, expensive but worth it to me. Check out http://www.swfa.com for selections.
