New Scope - Leupold LPS or Vari XIII
I am considering a new scope for my custom M98 308 Norma Magnum for long range shooting (both competition and hunting). I am a Leupold fan and have been so since I got my first high quality scope (a Leupold) more than 20 years ago. All my current scopes are Leupolds.
I am considering the LPS series in 3.5-14X50 but the new Vari X IIIs (4.5-14X50LR) in 30mm tube look pretty good and I really like the look of the Boone & Crockett Big Game reticle for hunting, long range and wind estimation, etc.
I'm in Australia and the LPS, I guess, is considerably more expensive than the Vari X IIIs and there would need to be a significant advantage to spend the extra money if the latter are as good as they sound.
Any advice on the choice between to two?
Only accurate rifles are interesting
