    Check out this Bushnell-
    https://www.primaryarms.com/bushnell...ed-rifle-scope

    Yeah, it's a 3gun scope, but it's First Focal Plane and therefore usable at all magnifications for range estimation. Not only that, it's on sale at the moment.

    Thanks for the tips! I shot a few handloads today and had some success, but think load development would be a bit easier with a proper scope. Range edited.jpg

    Along the lines of something in the 2-7 category I'm looking at picking up one of these. Should be a quality sub $200 optic.

    Yes it's "rimfire" but Leupold says it's designed to withstand 3X 308 recoil

    Another vote for a Leupold variable. I have three 2x7s. Tough, light, crystal clear, reliable, excellent eye relief, and they won't break your bank. Perfect power settings for distances out to 200yds.

    As a rule of thumb I have found the 30mm tubes while great on larger bolt and black guns look and feel too bulky on a lever. I dont scope a lever at the moment, but when I have I stick to a 1" tube.

    IMHO you can’t do much better than the Leupold 2X7, the older I get the more I appreciate up to 7 power. It just seems the 2X7 and a 444 Marlin, are Soul Mates!

    Their are only two kinds of people, those who own a 444 and those who wish they owned one, and yes folks, denial is bliss!

    Not much has really changed in the world in 2000 years, Christians are still being thrown to the Lions! and Satan's tool of Deception is still working like a charm, from the time of Adam and Eve, to today!

    2-7X Leupold or a 2-7X Redfield Revolution (made by Leupold) since your shots could be IVO the 200 yard mark.

    Here in the DFW area we have almost a dozen gunshows a year. Because my close friend is a FFL dealer, I make almost all of them.
    After a while, I have seen the same stuff so much I don't spend much time looking.
    But lately, I have had great fun shopping for used scopes. It is fun to shop for good deals, and there are good deals to be had.
    Keep in mind however, that condition is important because there are very few repair stations out there and repair/refinish is, inmyarrogentopinion very expensive. So the trick is shop a lot, and buy the nicest you can afford!

    As far as the OP's question, I would use the ubiquitous 3-9X40 for all the reasons that make it so popular. Good light gathering, best compromise on field of view, and probably best price overall.
