But Leupold is pretty good. I think you need to go to 6x18 after 500 yards to really get detail. Keep that in mind.
I would have to disagree. All the magnification in the world doesn't make up for super clear resolution and light gathering.

Had the VXII 6-18x40 for years and loved it till I picked up my first VXII 3.5-10x50. I've been stuck on large objectives and great glass since over any other factor.

Give me a choice between a great 10x with a 50mm obj over more power and a smaller obj and not equal quality of glass and coatings and I'll take the former every time.

I've got kills out past 1,000yds on bobcats and coyotes with my IOR Tactical 4-14x50mm and with 3 different Leupold's in the 4.514x50mm VXIII and Tactical models and while more would be nice on smaller critters they are more than adequate.

One none of us have mentioned yet either as a great alternative is the Zeiss Conquest Series which I dearly love.

Go with the Vortex Viper PST in 4-16x50mm and you'll be in love. That's an absolutely terrific "starter scope" for someone new to long range. Hell I really like mine and I've been shooting long range longer than most people on this site have been breathing LOL

The fine reticle is a bit hard to pick up in a busy picture but it's great the farther out you get.

Shhhh! The Model 70 brigade is slowly taking over but it's a stealth mission.

Check the classifieds here at LRH, Sniper's Hide, Gunbroker, and armslist.com.

If you really want something special though find a Model 70 Sharpshooter in 7STW.

Get on the list at brownells, midway etc and watch classifieds for new or once fired brass.
