best leupold scope for 100-300 yards benchrest shooting

Postby ruger #1 in 223 remington on Sat May 12, 2007 2:59 pm

I just bought a Ruger #1 single shot rifle, heavy barrel, in 223 remington. I plan to shoot from the bench at 100 to 300 yards and I want to get the best Leupold scope that is available..Other than wanting crosshairs instead of a dot and not really being interested in the high-tech features such as rangfinders or lighted reticles, I don't have any idea of what to buy, although I like leupold since I have used them for a long time. I don't mind spending whatever it takes to get the best scope. thanks

The best is whatever you think is the best. I like magnification for paper. Check out the Leupold #55186 ... scope.html . You may even use a fixed power scope for more magnification such as the 53434 ... scope.html . I like the versatility of a variable, though.
