Now I have to figure out what gun to put it on.

I ordered the Burris Fullfield II 2-7X35 from Cabela's. They're having a sale right now where the scope is marked down to $170, and they have another $20 off orders over $100. So including shipping it's about $165.

I think I'll put it on my 260 REM, move the Leupold VX-I 2-7X33 from that gun to the 243 for the kids. (That scope is already mounted on low rings and set for the kid's eye relief.) The old Redfield 3-9X40 that was on the 243 when I bought it will move to my Marlin 22, and the POC (Piece Of Crap) Tasco 4X32 will go to the junk pile.

On second thought, I'll keep the Tasco as a reminder of the day my brother and I got a half-racked buck with ony 11 shots between the two of us. On the first shot I broke one of the buck's front legs, but the scope hit me in the forehead and slid forward all the way to the turret. Tony and I chased the buck and let the slugs fly (we were both using 12 guages). Tony was a bad shot, and my scope was definately off. We finally got the buck, and since I shot first, shot last, and gave up some of my own blood in the process, I got to keep the rack. The scope actually has a visible gap in the crosshairs where the shock broke it. That was about 30 years ago, and is still one of my most memorable hunts.

The whole story takes too long, and it really should be told around a fire with a bottle being passed around. It included a river, getting wet to our crotches getting the buck out, and being confronted by the landowner who snuck up on us and said "Oh, it's you boys! Sounded like a young war out here!"
