Hey A friend of mine is looking for a new rifle and scope and is willing to pay up to around $2000 canadian max for a rifle and around 8-900 for a scope.
A 400-600 dollar scope would be better but he was intersted in the bushnell rangefinder scope if its any good.
For the rifles we were looking at the browning titanium A-bolt, Weatherby, Sako, and alower priced tikka stainless laminate. Used for deer hunting and ocassionaly elk moose.

What Scope do you reccomend, What higher priced rifle and lower priced($1000-1300) not low to me but whatever haha, and is the bushnell rangefinder scope any good.

A reply and help would be great thanks in advance.

I'd suggest a Savage model 11FCNS. You get the accutrigger and stock. You also have the selection of .300wsm for caliber (great for just about everything in canada). For inexpensive hunting optics right now I'd suggest the Redfield 3-9X40. Great optics (they are now made by Luepold) and a great price. This combination should be able to take elk sized game out to 400 yards fairly easily and accurately.
