Re: Best scope for lightweight rifle?
Obviously budget is going to play a role... but for a reasonable amount of money I would agree that a VX3 with the new MOA reticle would be a pretty solid choice. The newer VX6 in either 3-18 or 4-24 is a bit more expensive but gets more magnification without too much more added weight. I really like my nightforce, but they are very heavy and are really not an option for somebody targeting a very light-weight setup.
