+1, esp. for these old eyes.

Re: Reaching out for Mulies

I have a collection of 6X-24X 30 mm tubes with 50, 56, and now a 60mm objective lens.

Not just for hunting, but it is also nice at the range to be able to see your holes appear on the paper

The only time 6X sucked is when I had a standing buck only 60 feet away.

My Prarrie Poodle and pig gun 6X24 - 60mm

.270 Ackley improved 29 inch 1.250 dia. target barrel 7mm STW 28 inch 1.250 target barrel. I also love my .458 mag for varmints and the biggest game in the world.

Re: Reaching out for Mulies

I would agree w/ more power. At least with a higher variable you can zoom in if you need. I hunt w/ 5-20. Walking around its always on 5 and if time permits or I need I zoom in.

I bet none of you have a .234 (6mm rem necked to .234)
