Default Basset standard low mount and not full time scoping .

I bought this mount and the correct weaver mounts. I will not use it alot with a scope ,but for hunting and some ammo testing. What scope would be better a leupold vx freedom 3x9 40mm or 2x7 33mm. I do not want to over scope it. Any other Ideas? Thankyou. The rifle is a early 3 digit James River with alot of G.I. parts .

Of those 2, I would lean towards the 3x9 primarily for the improved light-gathering potential of the larger objective lens.

FWIW.
