    Depends on how much money you have to spend but 3-9*40 in a leopold or a nikon will work for most hunting.

      I bought a XLR in 30-06 last year and topped it with a Leopold 3-9x40 VIII.

              rrmont, to answer your question I think he is talking about the power of the scope.

                Any scope of decent quality in 2-7 or 3-9 power range will let you take advantage of the improved ballistics of that cartridge. You will probably want to stay with a 40mm objective lens or smaller to eliminate having to use high mounts which in turn will get your cheek up off the stock. My favorite would be a Leupold VXII in
                2-7 X 33. The same type scope in the Fulfield line by Burris would also be good and a bit cheaper.

                  You can't beat the Nikon ProStaff 3-9x40mm for under $150.00.

                        3-9x40 will do you just fine.
