    That gun is hard to beat with iron sights. If you prefer a scope, put on a low mount 2-7 or lower power. You will have a large enough field of view to pick up anything in the timber quickly including close running shots. Forget the see through mounts... with the right scope you will never have to consider dropping back to iron sights. Just remember, for whitetails and that rifle, you don't need high power for 500-1,000 yard shots. You needs something that can pick up a running whitetail quickly at 25 yards in the thick brush. If you can do that, you can easily hit any whitetail standing in the clear at 250 yards.

      I have used over under scope mounts that allow you to see the iron sights and also see through the scope. It is true that you cannot rest your chin on the rifle butt. It makes for inconsistent shooting. I would prefer regular scope mounts

          The answer might come a little late now but have a look at www.skinnersights.com once you get used to peeps you wont want to use anything else.

          The only optical that I might consider would be a reflex sight, no magnification and illuminated for fast target acquisition in darker forest situations. You can keep both eyes open with these sights, thus it is as easy as pointing the finger and pulling the trigger.
