Re: Would you consider this a long-range weapon?

I plan to put this scope on it Mark 4 6.5-20x50mm LR/T M1. It currently has a 4.5-14 Leupold

If the 4.5-14 has knobs tgt knobs on it, I would just use it. I would also look hard @ the 8.5-25x50mm Mark4. Believe it or not, it has more eyerelief and is much more forgiving as far as eye position than the 6.5-20x50mm.
You also don't have to spring the big bucks for the Mark4. The VX-IIIs are just as good. Just don't have the exposed M1 style knobs. I've got both, and can't tell the two apart optically. The Mark4 does look the part a little better though!!
