You bought a relatively nice rifle like a Tikka T3 and want to put a cheap piece of junk on it?
I'm with Saltydog on this one. I purchased a cheaper rifle that the Tikka, a Rem. 700 in 25-06. When I spoke about a cheap Tasco, a buddy of mine had a fit. I couldn't afford a Leupold, so I opted for the Bushnell Elite. It is an outstanding scope for the money.(around $150.00+tax) Crystal clear and very consistent.
