Just bought a Bushmaster Varminter rifle and would really appreciate hearing from other owners of this rifle on what to expect from it. I also need advise on a scope for it,after the 1050.00 for it my scope budget is severly curtailed right now and after I get one on it and start shooting, it may be upgraded at a later date.

I would really love to see how the owther owners of this rifle have it set up.

Save up money for a decent optic.

Mine is a real pleasure to shoot. Leupold scope and Mk 4 rings, target turrents, ambi mag and safety, LMT 2 stage trigger, and scope shade.
Last time at the range I put 19 of 20 rounds into a 3/4" hole in about 35 seconds.

The varminter is an awesome rifle. I would have bought one but could not afford the rifle and the optic. Like Stick said buy a good optic and you will have a tack driver like Edwin907's.

You'll love the Varminteer. Mine has a Sightron II 4x16 on a Armalite mount. Rock solid and I get 3/4" groups all day with the Winchester 45 grain hollow points(White Box).

I have a Super Varminter with yhe carry handle and a Trijicon Ta11. I love it, I shoot about 1 MOA @ 100 yds, no it's not a super zoom scope, but it gets the job done very efficently. Good shooting!!

Just ordered a Super Sniper 16x from Swfa and warne tactical rings for it from Natchez, Hope It works out to be the right combo. Thanks for everyone's help.

Will post pics when it is put together.
