Leupold 3.5-10 x 40mm fixed focus, M1 Turrets???
Looking for some feedback. I recently built a 338-300 wsm and topped it with a Leupold VX3 3.5-10x40mm fixed focus scope. Pac-Nor's 24" lightweight contour barrel is shooting ~5/8" groups consistently at 100 yards with Barnes .338 210 TTSX's @ ~2835 fps using 68 grains of RL-17 and Fed GM215M primers... Accuracy is much better than I was expecting out of a 7.4 pound gun (including scope).
With this kind of accuracy I can comfortably take longer shots with the rifle (out to 500 yards or so), and am looking to have an M1 elevation turret installed ... but is it worth it on a fixed focus scope?
Or should I upgrade to a VX3 Long Range (LR) version??
