I put an old Banner I have available on my Scout .308 with the intention of replacing it later. I have been looking at some of the Tactical 1x4's or 1x6's from Vortex mostly. I plan to pick up a Leupold when one is on sale, but I'm in no hurry. Am I going the right direction with a scope? Does anyone have suggestions. I plan to use this like Col. Cooper intended, nearby my side when I'm outside on my ranch, more of a defensive gun than a hunting rifle. Around 100 yards or less.
