    50mm means tall rings
    Guns dont fit in cases well, just dont look right to me on anything but an AR
    Plus you dont hunt prairie dogs at night and , if I'm after something else that night that's what I got spotlights for

    If you look at that link you will see smaller objectives.

    Since I know you already bought the scope, can we stop recommending them?

    After my experience with Steiner, I’ll never own or recommend a Burris product (they bought Steiner). Service was awful.


    For the money, I really like SWFS SS scopes.

    You don’t need as much magnification as you think. I shoot a fixed 6x out to 500. I dropped a small coyote at 310 last weekend with it.

    I’m really leaning towards a 3-15x for my 204. https://swfa.com/swfa-ss-3-15x42-tactical-rifle-scope-6.html

    He needs the magnification cuz he’s shooting little bitty prairie dogs from a couple hundred yards away.
