I bought the Vortex 4x12 with BDC reticle + tall Leupold mounts but the bolt still rubbed the back of the scope so since I had the tall rings now I put a 3x9x50 Leupold I already had on it and its a good match. Now I've got to get something to put the Vortex on? ;)

Hard to beat any age Sako. Never owned 1 that would not shoot lights out. Nice.

I've never shot an Otter with it but I have killed a couple of Beavers with it . It's light plus light recoil which makes it fun to shoot!
