HTex, in my sell off most everything and start over thingy that's where I am right now, I bought a Tikka T3 260 Hunter Grade, to replace a SAKO M85 HG 260, and a Minox ZA5HD 2-10x50 30mm BDC to do exactly what you outlined.
Still hunting or sitting an enclosed box, popup or elevated blind is what this gun is all about. Light, quick handling, little or no recoil and capable of killing anything in Texas at the ranges' I would shoot at, with no Knobs to twist & kinda like the camera's I use in a Point & Shoot application. Vortex has the same size scope in a Viper HS 2-10x44 in a VPlex or a BDC...and worth a look. The Minox's BDC was just a little easier for me to see with these worn out eyes than the Vortex's & I liked the bigger 50mm Objective, plus was about $50 bux cheaper net net....which Always appeals to my Scots/Hebrew nature.
