You can get an S111 Sightron 8-32 for 200 less. a better scope for less money.

This is a great scope, more than enough for your needs. It amazes me how many people whine about Leupold's. Why the hate? The glass is very good, they track very well, the parallax and focus is great, they are well made and the customer service and warranty is probably the best I have personally dealt with. You will at some point send it in for mods or repairs. I have S&B's, Zeiss high and mid end, Kahles and Burris, other than the glass quality of the S&B which is slightly better I give up nothing with my American made and serviced VXIII's and Mark 4's. Buy it use it, be happy. The company is one of the oldest makers in America for a reason!

Agree, I and I think of most of the "New Brands" croping up as second class. They may have a few new Bells and Whistles but the quality of glass is just not there. We will see how long they stay in business. How many have come and gone in my 14 years hunting, many.

Excepting the Burris, Leupold quality does not match with the others. You did not include Nightforce or March, and they are top of the line too.

I have the Leupold VX 3 on a varmint rifle. It is just okay, not spectacular.
