Re: Anyone own or used a Redfield optic?
Thanks for the insight. What I have been wondering, is that Meade owns Redfield and Weaver. My good friend owns a tack driving .308, and swears by the Weaver on top of it. However, he is not a hunter. He does A LOT of target shooting, but has never shot farther than 600 yards. On the range, it seems very good, but I have never tried it during a low light situation.
Redfields are priced significantly more than Weavers, and I would never buy anything less than a VXIII quality for a long range gun. My other concern is, I am trying to decide on an optic for a .300 Win Mag I am building and the kick of a .308 is quite lower than the .300 Win Mag.
Thanks to all for their comments. I just keep checking this post, hoping someone has tried the new models. I hate to be the first one on the block, with a new model of anything (car, lawn mower, or anything). I will probably end up with a VXIII, but for now, I am just enamered with the 6X to 30X range.
