Re: Help me choose between these scopes.
I'd say get the VX-III if its going to be primarily a hunting rig.
And IMO...all 3 of those are too much scope for a 17 Remington...but of your choices, I'd put the VX-III on it also.
The reason I say that is this...the 17 Rem. is a very flat shooter within its useful range and it does not have harsh recoil...you can get a good 1 inch tube scope much cheaper than a 30mm...you will not need the extra adjustment range of the 30mm on the 17 Rem.
If I were looking for a scope for a 17 Remington...I'd be looking at the VX-II's.
