I shot my elk at 707 yard adjusted and dropped it one shot. But for the lapua i was thinking more along the lines of a Leupold VX-3 8.5-25x50mm Long Range. I like this scope and i think it would be a good one any thoughts or opinions would be appreciated!
I would say go for the MK IV instead in the same power range or in the 6.5-20.
They are built to tolerate more shock than the standard VX III's.
That being said I own both and love them but I don't like either as well as my IOR tactical 6-24x50.
