    Remington XCR Compact tactical

    I'm thinking about getting a Remington XCR Compact Tactical in .308. Any comments about this rifle?

    I've got a 7.62 Robinson XCR (with a 5.56 conversion on the way), a 5.56 Colt LE6920, and a Springfield M1A NM. A nice bolt action .308 appeals to me for accurate shooting. I like the out-of-the-box features of the Rem. XCR.

    Any recommendations on a scope for ~$500?

    I put a Sightron 3x9x42 on my CZ 527 in 223 and I love it. I've got a Leupould VXIII and I like the Sightron better.

    That guy, he said I should be oblong and have my knees removed. But I don't trust him, he plays the banjo.

    They are good scopes. From a pure dollars to performance ratio, they're hard to beat.

    They aren't--quite--in the same league as Leupold Mk4s, but they're not far off. Friend of mine had one on a .338 Lapua for a couple of years and it performed satisfactorily.

    Agreed. If you don't mind spending your hard earned cash on stuff there are far better choices. But for the money I think they out perform their price.

    Always did have a hard time paying more for the optics on a gun then the gun itself. ???

    You can drop $2500 on a US Optics and have a really nice scope, but you're paying a lot of money for something that does essentially the same thing as that $300 scope. You can look through them and the difference is obvious, but you're well into diminishing returns there.

    You can also use the SS scopes on big bore stuff (like that .338 or a .50) and be confident you won't be shaking it like a maraca wondering what broke loose inside.

    Don't forget used optics either. Most of my high-end 'scopes were bought used. It's one reason I keep going to Knob. You'd be surprised what you might run across there, optically-speaking.

    My last one was a used Kahles ZF95. $500.

    Try the Millet LRT, illuminated Mildot reticle and it works very well on my tikka T3. Much cheaper than the Nightforce on my Lapua rifle but reasonably close in terms of actual performance.
