Now that I've made my move and ordered a new Remington 700 DM mountain rifle in 7mm-08, I'm giving some more serious thought to scopes. My budget is about $200. I intially thought I'd go with a Leupold VX-1 or one of their new Rifleman scopes. However, I'm interested in hearing about other companies and other products. The guy who runs the gunshop where I bought the rifle really likes Sightron scopes. This is the first I've heard of them. I'd be interested in hearing from anyone who has experience with or thoughts on Sightron, or for that matter any scope in my price range. Sighton's web page is here:http://www.sightron.com/ I really like the Leupold's lifetime warranty, and I figure they wrote the book on waterproofing and anti-fogging. I do plan to get the flip up scope caps for whatever scope I buy. Thanks for further opinions--I've heard some already with my original posts, but if anyone has second thoughts, have at it.
