You are welcome.
4-16 is even better for those ranges, I think 12 power would be minimum.
Enjoy the gun, I like guns, but only a few really grab me. Earlier 1903 have a great feel to the action and the Sakos just feel good period (at least the older ones, never handled the newer ones)
I certainly appreciate all of the great info. And I'm looking forward to shooting this Sako. I've got a set of Sako rings on order and am trying to decide on a scope. I'm thinking I should go with a 4x16x50 so I can try it out for long range target shooting. Agin thank you for the input.
