Re: millett scope?? opinions please
I wouldn't recommend that scope. Some guys like big scopes, but I wouldn't put a 56 Obj on anything... 50 is my upper limit, but I don't see any real benefit to anything larger than 40 in the field.
I'm not a fan of low end Chinese optics...most of them are total junk. They usually end up being a waste of time and money. When you actually look through some of these scopes, they are blurry at any power and get even less clear as you turn it up...and that's until they break. Vortex is making a good effort and might be the exception. Look at the 6-20x44 for $250, if you like a lot of mag.
As to magnification, it is a personal choice. Large game can be targeted to 700 yards with a good 6x, but it depends on your eyes. A Fixed 6x Leupold is a great all around scope and a good value.
At $399, I think the 3-9 Zeiss Conquest is the best deal going right now for a true quality optic.
