Hello. I need some quick advice. I am scheduled to take a precision rifle course in May of this year. Although I have been shooting a rifle for over 20 yrs. I have never shot one with a scope before. I am now faced with the difficult task of choosing a scope for my rifle. Since I have never used a scope before and there are so many choices a friend suggested I ask around on this web site as there were many knowledgeable people who could probably be of help.
The rifle I am taking is a Polytech M-14. I sent it to Fulton Armory for their Chineese Upgrade Package. Since then, it seems to function fine and shoot straight. I can consistantly hit a 12X 8 steel plate at 90 yds. The class instructor suggested I not "spend a lot of money for a scope just for this class". Since this will be an Urban Precision Rifle course we will not be shooting beyond 200 yds. Any advice would be most appreciated. I really need to make a decision within the next week or so. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
