Getting it put together... Vanguard 2 and scope

I have now mounted a Leupold VX2 2-7x33 in S&K rings/bases on my Vanguard 2 Bonz youth 7mm 08.  I think this is going to be a handy combination for me, a woman with a short LOP.  Looks good and balanced on the short rifle and not much weight.  Now to go sight in.  Yes!  Very excited!

LM, Glad things are coming together, let us know how the -08 shoots, and which ammo it liked. Any game in particular your hunting with this set-up?

I live in Arkansas, and hunt whitetail for the most part.  Do elk hunt on occasion (mules are VERY helpful there.)

I think you will really like you rifle. My daughter shoots a Vanguard GH2 (Girls hunt 2) in 243. She really likes it. She topped hers with a Nikon Pro staff 3x9 x40. That shorter LOP really made a difference for her. She's a horsewoman.

Congrats! I've long been a fan and hand loader of the 7mm-08. Yours ought to be a good combo with Vanguard, caliber and scope!

I see a little black box with an X in it.
Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.
