    Hey guys... I'm looking to buy the Marlin XL7 rifle in 30-06 next weekend. I'd really like to put a pretty decent scope on it capable of one day being accurate to 500yds. Is this possible?

    I'm pretty much a handgun guy myself. I do miss the rifle days though. :wtc:

    Recommend me some scopes that are pretty good bangs for the buck.

    Well the super sniper is a fixed 10x and really decent for the price. But I wouldnt use it for hunting, target shooting it would be fine.

    For hunting I would want a variable, I would still prefer a variable but if your budget cant handle a decent 600+ variable scope vs 319 for a decent 10x

    If you're not hunting I wouldn't buy a sporter rifle in the first place.

    Hunting rifle punches holes in paper just as well as tactical rifles.
