Are you posting directly from your phone? If so you could try 2 things.

1. Take a screen shot of the original picture and try posting that. 90% of the time that will work.

2. Email the picture to yourself from your phone. When you go to send the email the phone should ask you what size you would like to send the picture, ( for iPhone if will ask: small, medium, large, or original?) Choose medium and then open that email and try posting the pic from there..

Possibly a z3 swaro with the brh reticle it come with 1" rings. Those rings and bases cost $200 cdn after spending a large amount on the rifle I'll just use what i have, and wont be stretching my shots past about 400yds, but am open to suggestions for.the glass.

I have that scope in 4X12X50 and Iím pretty sure BB has a Z3 as well. I really like mine and I think heís said positive things about his in the past as well. Mine was on a 257 Lazerguard and now sets on a 240 Wilderness. I bet youíll be very happy with it. 

One thing I can tell you that I learned the hard way is to pay attention to the torque specs as they will lighter than normal scopes due to Swaro internal glass specs. I had an, unbeknownst to me, inexperienced smith over torque mine and it required a trip back to Swarovski to fix it.

Congratulations! She's a beauty! Glad you got the pics posted.

I've owned a bunch of Sako's over the years; excellent guns. One I have had since new in '78, a Varmint .222 Rem that shoots, "light's out"!

I consider Sako  the European weatherby, it's not a 9 lug but its a 3 lug bolt. There are only 2 manufacturers i would buy 1 Weatherby,  2 Sako or Tikka.
