    well i was bored and surfed ebay this afternoon. saw a 3x9x40 B & L Scopechief with 2 hrs to go sitting there way to cheap. i paid a little more than i would like to have but if it is in as good as condition as advertized the 63.00 price tag is a steal. the guy is in canada so it may take several weeks to get here. now do i put it on the rimfire or do i put it on the 7mm rem mag and take the 3200 elite w/ A.O. and put it on the rimfire? it's a 4x12x40

    yea but i don't nead A.O. for deer hunting, for the rimfire it adjust down to 10 yds. the scopechief was the top of the line scope mfr. by Baush & Lomb for Bushnell untill B&L came out with the elites. but because of year of mfr. the lens coatings may be better on the elite. if so then it may have to stay on the , as you say "super 7". what i realy want for the 7 someday is a 4200 elite, 3x9x50. i just dont have 400.00 - 500.00 at the moment.

    If you think you need adjustable objective on your rimfire, then go for it!

    You may just have to wait til you recieve it and make your decision from there. You have plenty of time before you need your 7 again, I guess... unless you just shoot it a lot.

    What rimfire do you have?

    ruger m77/22 lr all weather in a factory walnut stock. with the cheap tasco scope on it now i got eay sub 1/2" 5 shot groups at 50 yds and even got down to 3/8". the cross hair is too thick for my taste i just want something crisp and sharp to go on top of it. like you said i have time to try it both ways and make my mind up this summer. i do shot the 7mm as much as i can during the summer since it is still a work in progress.

    i was/am pleasantly surprised. i had a very light 30-06 as a result the felt recoil is no dif with the 7mm, and it felt a tad better to tell the truth. again it was a very light rifle (30-06) with a short barrel and it thunmped good. i just didn't know it at the time. the 7mm is a very versital caliber. and in my opinion if you're going for white tail with any magnum, the 7mm is the way to go. not too over powering, eventualy when i start to reload i'll work some loads down to the .280 and it will be an absolute joy to shoot.;)

    Agreed Jim...

    I find the 7 to be easy on the shoulder, flatter than sh*% and a fine choice for mo whitetail.

    I also think its a good western cartridge for muleys, pronghorn and elk (wisely placed).

    two rounds i have found that shoot great out of my remington 7 and extremely light on the shoulder are 140 gr. noslar partitions with 62 gr. of imr4350. loaded up some 120 grain v max with 60 gr. of imr4064 and had no problems letting my daughter touch a few of them off. very light on recoil. 7 is a good versatile round imo.

    my opinion would be wrong.:wink: i don't even like the scope i have on mine. got a bushnell sitting on it and i don't care for the crosshairs on it. to thick but it is the only gun i really don't shoot much compared to my varmint getters so i leave it on there. i am a fan of the elites so i guess that would be my opinion, but it is just that, an opinion.
