Scope suggestions for a Savage 17HMR
I've just bought my first rifle and have been looking for the right scope.
A few questions?
a) "sweet 17" or "17 hot" scopes -- just a gimmick? If I use different weights/different velocities, doesn't that undermine the turret gradations?
b) I would really like a mil-dot scope so that I can accommodate for bullet drop, rather than adjusting elevation -- a newbie error?
c) Mueller is often pointed out as a great brand for the money. Does its optics clearly beat BSA, Barska, Simmons?
d) I suppose, any other advice? BTW, I'd like to stay <$150, preferably closer to $100.
