Hello, all!

I , lucky me, have won a Kimber 84m 308 on a NRA youth sports raffle! I am a hunter mostly as far as shooting. Very excited! It has the stainless barrel with flat dark earth synthetic stock. Am wondering what glass you all think would be good, I hunt primarily whitetail at 250 yards or less, and would you go matte black or satin stainless as far as finish. Thanks y’all!

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Ladymulerider and congratulations on winning the rifle. I've always favored Leupold products, they can be had at a reasonable price and come with a lifetime warranty. The trend today is toward high power scopes which I feel are useless in the field. I like a simple 2-7 or 3-9 power and hunt with it set on 4 power. I've never favored anything shinny for hunting so I'd go with black/blue finish on the scope.

Yes I have a leupold VX2 2-7x33 on a Weatherby youth that is very useful in a matte black. Not heavy and great all around.
