There are some great scopes out there. I have became a scope snob of recent. I have gone through a period of upgrading ALL of my optics. Right now, I have mostly Leupold, VARI-X 3's, and Nikon Monarch series. Notice I did NOT say VX 3, Leupold. I do not like the three piece main tube, and I don't think that the optics are as good on the VX, versus the VARI-X series. That includes the VARI- x 2's as well. I have a VARI-x 2 , 3-9 on my BDL, 308, that is incredibly clear, and the Windage, and elevation mechanism is flawless, never moves, and when you have to make a adjustment, what ever you dial is what you get for movement. The 4.5-14 AO that I put on the 300 win mag is Crystal clear, and again the adjustment mechanism is accurate. I do like the Burris scope, but forget which one it is that I like. I just bought a used but not abused 6.5-20 AO VARI X 3, which is going on the new build.
I told Fred Ea the same thing......I like the vari x 2 3x9x50 better than the 3 series....I to have A vari x 3 4.5x14x50 on my 25-06 sendero

Butterbean,

I just realized , my 6.5-20x50mm Leupold is a VX-III not a VX-3. There is a slight diffrence. Both of my Leupolds have 30mm tubes and side focus. The MK4 4.5-14x44mm LR/T (Precision Rifle) is a one piece tube. I'll have to look at the VX-III to check. I also like the fact that the VX-III has 94 MOA of adjustment for both windage and elevation and the MK-4 has 100 MOA. This means that I can shoot past 1000yds without needing a 20 MOA Base.

I've actually shot a Sendero in a .25-06 that was wearing a that exact Buris FF2 6.5-24x50mm scope. It wasn't bad, but eye relief was a little tough on the higher end.

If you can part with $750.00 The Mk4 4.5-14x44mm LR/T is the way to go. Even though the VX-III was more expensive, I should have gotten a second MK4.

Dan

Re: 7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner

Well I got the Remington 700 Sendero 7mm STW rifle and accessories today.

It is sweeeeeet!

The bolt is soo smooth and the trigger is about perfect. I may have to cancel the jewell trigger I was going to put on it.

I also got 42 rounds of ammo instead of the 20. And I can't wait to try out the Forster Bench Rest Dies.

I'm going to take it out to the range and see how it compares to my other Sendero 7mm STW.

Butterbean,

This isn't your run of the mill Tactical MK4, It's more of a target model not a tactical model. Here is a picture of it:

Here is another picture with it on my .30-06 AI, Sorry about the blood, my father had to go back and get the camera and I had to start working on the Elk.

7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner-006.jpg

It is similar to the 30mm tube VX-3 scopes, but it has a one piece tube. it's very robust and is a good choice for some one who wants to be able to dial in a long range shot, but mostly hunts out to 300-400 yds. It has wonderful glass and is very robust. It is perfect for this rifle I have it on. I have shot this rifle out to 1000yds and it performed very well.

Hope this helps,

Dan
