    I picked up a 7-08 Handi a at a pawn shop cause it was just a real good deal, I`m of small frame and it fit like a glove. It has a scope base on it but no optics, I`m pondering what scope to slap on it, if you have a handi what do you use to see through??

    i have a marlin XS7 in 7mm-08 and i use a Swift 6-24x50 on it. of course this may be a bit much scope for your rifle. but check out the Swift scopes, i ahve had really good luck with them. another suggestion would be the Nikon Prostaff line of scopes, good quality scope with a decent price.

    No need to consider that anymore, I took the rifle to Cabellas today to try eye relief on different scopes, WEEELLL they had the Lee challenger press kit on sale today and I was a few bucks short. I sold them the gun and bought the loading press and dies for my 30-30 and 45 acp.
    Still have some cash to take the MRS. to dinner.

    However thank you for the reply.
