I would like to get myself into a new scope. I currently have a Leupold VX-11 3 x 9 x 50mm which I have had for many years, and I do like this scoope.
Most of my hunting/shooting distances are between 100-500 yards. I hunt Moose, Elk, Mule Deer, Whitetail, in varying conditions from wide open to forest.Here are some of the scopes that I am considering.
What do you guys think? My budget is max $1000.00.
Should I be looking at scopes with a 30mm main tube or is 1" okay?
