    Have you tried just using open sights? Or does the rifle not have them?

    For a 1-8 power scope Swaro makes the Z8i 1-8x24.
    I know they are not in the same price bracket as the Leupold or NF, but when you are hunting DG...are you really worried about money?

    If you are looking at the Swaro check out the 4A-IF reticle...it's pretty sweet.

    Nice, but not a fan of that style of reticle for hunting, although the MDR isn't too bad.
    Looks more like a 3-gun AR style scope.

    Either way, Swaro or S&B...you are not going wrong with this kind of glass.
    Let me know if you happen into a deal on one of them.

    I'll be making a scope purchase this upcoming winter, leaning heavily toward the Swaro.

    Definitely more of a tac style scope but have been reading where this style is being used for hunting more and more....got to look at one recently and it was really slick.
