Thanks for all the input guys.
The iron sights are great and I'm fine with them for the short range hunting I'm doing in my area but I know want to start doing some long range shooting so why not scope it right.
I think I might take a chance on the Sadlack Aluminum mount even though some say it's not so great. From what I can see if I do have any issues they sound like a good company and they should make good on it. If they are willing to make the mounts specific to each rifle they sound pretty good to me.
I guess I need to look at cheek pads too.
I do want to try and keep this rifle as light as possible. It's not crazy heavy but after hiking through the woods yesterday I can see what people are talking about.
I do have to start researching load data because locally at a minimum of $1 a round is getting expensive.
