Hi guys I'm new to the forum, been shooting guns for 40 years, but nothing serious. Just a farm boy from Idaho, hunting varmints and big game. I just picked up a DPMS 308 AP4 heavy barrel, AND a 24" stainless barrel for it too. I was thinking of playing around doing some long distance shooting. I can find spots up here in North Idaho to do that!! Anyway I ran across Burt's ad for his nice 308 and I am intrigued by the Osprey scope. Would like some comments on it. I've found one I can buy for $150, but is it too much scope for a 308? Realistically I'll probably never shoot over 500 yards. So, should I save a little money AND weight, and get the 6-24x50 (I've found that one for $115)? Or should I go for the big one? And before anyone tells me to go for one of the expensive ones, I can't. I just shot my whole wad on the gun and barrel. I need something cheap, but my 3-9x40 Bushnell isn't going to cut I don't think anyway. BTW, I also have a Colt AR15 setup as a house sweeper. And several others too. So this isn't my first tactical weapon. Just my first sniper type setup. I'm excited to get it. Its still in the mail from Montana. Should be showing up here in the next couple days. I was lucky to find it, they had it come in and nobody had any money on it, paid $1400, I thought that wasn't too bad considering some of the stuff I've seen selling on here. I'm in need of some extra mags for it if anyone can spare a couple at a normal price I'm happy to pay shipping to North Idaho from your place.
