My father just gave me his pump action Remington model 760 30-06 I need to get a scope for it and he suggested a Simmons. I am unsure what to get but I would like to be able to have something with a good view up to 300 yards. I was thinking leupold. Suggestions?

leupold over simmons hands down. any good quality 3-9x40 will work.

For value and quality the next thing i would do would buy a Nikon buckmasters if you didnt want to spend as much as the leupold would cost. for about 220 you can get one and i own two or three now and you cant beat them for the price. I have owned a leupold vxII 3x9x50 and it was special. I passed it on to my oldest son last year.

I like Nikon myself but you need to go to a shop and look at the scopes in your price range and get the one you like they all make pretty good scopes now
