    Scope for upto 500

    I bought a .223 Southern Gun Company Speedmaster yesterday from a member of my club that has moved abroad.

    I need a scope. Also interested in a set of quality low mounts to fit a weaver/picatinny rail.

    Rifle is going to be used mainly for targets out to 600m with the occasional bit of foxing. Magnification of up to 30x though I've discovered I'm not keen on massive magnification. 40mm objective would be fine.

    I can't really spend more than 500.

    What have you got to spare?

    Get a Weaver T24 if you can find one!
    I've got a 36x on my .222

    Frank that's a fine scope but I don't think it's what I'm after on this rifle. Thanks though.

    Thanks for that. I tried the Vortex line last year at the Help for Heroes Shoot and they do look good.

    Guys. Thanks very much I'm sorted. Had numerous very tempting offers and have pushed the boat out.
