On a deer rifle you are really concerned with object and light gathering as you get a lot of shots before sunrise and after sunset. Not so much with antelope You will be shooting in mid day, no shadows, so you can save money on that. No way your 257 can outshoot 9 power. And I never heard of anyone shooting a goat much under 150 yards. I'd say a fixed 10 or 8 power 40 mm Leupold would be perfect. I have several fixed 10 and 12 power leupolds for prairie dogs and goats. I could probably hook you up with one of my spares. Consider trading the mountain for the heavy barrel or standard BDL I have the 60's model heavy in .223, royal blue finish like a Weatherby, and kill many pd's at 500 yards, 80% kill ratio, (Light wind) with fixed 12 Leupold.

Thanks for the input Gordo. I didn"t mean to imply that the gun can actually outshoot the scope, but at that 300 plus range the crosshairs start to look pretty beefy agains the vitals.

When I picked up this gun I was actually looking for a .25-06, but I bought this thing NIB for $175 with scope mounts. I couldn"t turn it down.

Have you ever had any drawbacks to shooting a high fixed power scope out there? My average shot at muley"s in MT has been in the 300 range.

Thanks again!
