I am rigging my 30-30 up for my son to take on the juvenile this year. I am going to put a youth stock on it and let him shoot managed recoil loads. I really want him to kill his first deer with the same gun that I did and let the tradition be passed down.

I am probably going to put a red dot on it for him. I expect the shots to be close and think that it will be easier for him to find the target in a red dot scope versus a regular powered scope. He has shot a 223 with a red dot with good results.

Can anyone recommend a good one that would go on a 30-30 and not break the bank? I would also like to have one that I can use my same mounts that I have on it now.
I pray to fish until my dying day. When it comes to my last cast, I then most humbly pray, when in the Lord's safe landing net & I'm at peace that in His mercy I be judged big enough to keep.
