This seems to be the highest magnification Kahles are making.
(scope will be used on a 300wsm)
Thanks for your help
IMO (after 40 years of hunting, from PDs and elk in Montana to plains game in Africa) you would be much happier, in the long run, with one of the top-of-the-line 4X-16X range scopes rather that the 4-12 or 6-20.
If I had the funds I'd go for the 3.2-17X U.S.Optics SN3.
I don't think you quite need 20X for the longer shots, and the 3.5-4X lower end is better than 6X for the closer shots.
