    Advice on what scope to put on my rifles?

    Hi there, I need some advice on what scope to put on which rifle.
    Currently I only use the rifles for target practice as I do not have any land / opportunities for vermin or stalking but hopefully will be doing this in the future.
    The rifles are:
    Hyme 243
    Ruger 30.06
    Sako Finnfire .22LR
    And scope are:
    Swarovski 4-12 X 50 – 1” tube
    S&B 8X56 – 30mm tube
    Leupold VX-II 4-12X50 1” tube
    Leupold Vari-X III 3.5-10X40 Tactical 1”tube
    Nikon Field Master 4-12X50 side parallax 1” tube
    My thinking is the Nikon on the Sako .22 as it has parallax down to 50m and definitely keep the Swarovski possibly on the .243, but may need the magnification on the 30.06 – not sure hence the question.
    Looking forward to getting your input.
    Many thanks Peter

    Nikon on the 22.
    Swaro on the 30.06
    S&B on the 243

    One could argue the last two the other way round - it would depend on what you were using them for.

    Hi JMHO

    Thanks for your advice, my thinking is heading in that direction.

    I concur - based on possible use of .243 under the lamp.

    i would definatley put the nikon on the .22. have one on mine and it has transformed rabbiting. i would personally put the other two the other way round and have the fixed power on the 30 06. you will have a wider range of quarry with the 243 and if you want to wind the mag up and practice at longer ranges the 243 is kinder on the ears and shoulder
