Would a Leupold Mark 2, 3-9X40mm T2, Mil dot be a good match for a Howa 1500 Ranch in .243? What about Leupold QRW Low Rings (.730) (Quick Release)? it would be coming off an AR but i think it might be okay on my truck gun. Opinions?

Seems like it would work just fine Boo Boo. I am not absolutely certain regarding the ring height however. That is a light barrel so it may work. If it doesn't....it's Bush's fault.

I don't know why it wouldn't work. Try it and see. Then let us know how it worked.

Do I need to order anything else to mount this this to the 1500 or do ya think the QRWs will will fit the rail? Aren't they pretty universal?Attached File  243.JPG   7.83KB   30 downloads

Do you mean Varri-X-II? I have 3X9X40 Vari-X-II scopes on quite a number of rifles. I do not use quick release rings myself but do use low rings. Best to mount the scope as low as possible. As long as you can slip a business card between the scope bell and the barrel you are good. The 3X9X40 is a good choice for most rifles and a good one for your 243.
