Personally I do not like the Remington as a platform for a DG rifle. However you are on the right track with scope choice. Best for DG scope is whatever can handle the recoil and with which you are comfortable and that has the lowest magnification starting on 1, this is the best, as you are better off and will be faster with this than a scope with a higher low end magnification. Always keep it on the lowest magnification when stalking. If it is further away you will always have time to zoom up, but if you are zoomed up and it is close you will often not have time to zoom down.
