I have a Winchester Model 70 Stainless in .270 Win. caliber that I took in on trade. . Considering I don't deer hunt, I have no practical use for the gun. I can count on one hand the number of times I've hunted deer in my life, and probably have fingers left over. I don't foresee starting now, either. A.) I weigh in excess of 400 lbs., so I'm not climbing up in no tree. B.) I work part time for a church, so there's no cash to pay an expensive lease or club dues. C.) I drive a mini-van with 13" tires, so I can't go anywhere that the roads aren't pretty good. The Winchester is listed for sale in the classifieds, but I realize that the last half of January is probably not the best time to sell a deer rifle. It will probably sit in my safe until October; but I figure as long as I have it, I may as well shoot it a little. Besides, I need a good excuse to use the rifle range at Coast Rifle & Pistol Club, instead of always being on the pistol ranges. Before anyone chimes in recommending a Zeissaworski Turbo-Death 2000 ZoomMaster Magnum Deluxe in 45X, . . . . please understand, I'm not sinking any money into this gun, other than a couple boxes of cheap ammo. I have four odd scopes sitting here at my house, not being used for anything, so it will be one of those. I'm seeking recommendations as far as which one would be best for a .270. Scope 1 . . . Tasco 3-9x40 Scope 2 . . . Redhead 3-9x40 (Bass Pro's private-label, supposedly made for Bass Pro by Nikon) Scope 3 . . . Simmons 3-9x50 Scope 4 . . . Leupold Vari-X II, 2-7x32 (1970's or 80's model, belonged to my late grandfather) This will just be used for occasional plinking/target shooting at the range, not to exceed 300 yards. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks.
