Remington 700 SPS Varmint in .223 ( http://www.remington.com/products/firearms/centerfire_rifles/model_700/model_700_SPS_varmint.asp ) Nikon Buckmaster 4.5 - 14 x 40 with "Bullet Drop Compensator Reticle" ( http://www.scopesnmore.com/riflescopes4less/products/nikon-buckmaster-6453.htm ) Not looking for the best of the best, but that seems like a halfway decent set up for me. Gun is $529 and scope is $300 at Bass Pro. Not great prices but I don't think I'm being ripped off either...? I'm not totally sold on the scope, hence looking around online before purchasing. I don't know much at all about them to be honest so I'm looking for some help. I'm looking to shoot out to 500 yards tops.
