Not running it, but if you have the funds for 1-8x then go for it. I have a 1-4x on my AR-15, and find the true 1x very useful. Look up range reports on magnification vs range. A good rule of thumb is 1x magnification for every 100 yards, but that isn't from experience. Good luck!
Edit: Going to run a 2.5-10x on my Maten when funds allow (maybe that will help you).
