Re: new tactical

Check out the Sightron SIII line of scopes. They are really really nice and not too bad on price. You can also get a MOA reticle too, which makes holding wind easy. As well as fast hold over for "shorter" shots. Personally I think they are one of the best scopes for a decent price.

Re: new tactical

I'm with 6x6, just send it to Leupold and spend the one hundred sum odd bucks for the turrets. While its there spend another hundred bucks and change the reticle if you want. Nothing wrong with the scope you have.

Re: new tactical

I'll have to shoot them a email and ask them what they can do for me and some costs. Thanks for the suggestion

P.S. Leupold's new site is up and running! Dont know how different it looks from what it use to be but it seems pretty neat and easy to navigate!

Can you be more specific on what Leupold you have now? 30mm LR version, 1" version?? You may already have all of the scope you need. You can go in many directions with the scope you already have.

Just regular ol' VX-III not the VX-I.

I'm talking about veiling glare, not lens flare. It degrades contrast in most hunting situations. Low glare is what makes the image in good German scopes pop out at you. You wouldn't notice much glare in a VX-III, because those scopes have average to above average (low) glare.

Of all the scopes discussed in his thread, Sightron and Millett have the worse glare. Vortex is next (still below average). The Leupold is best. Which model Weaver are you looking at?

Glare increases for larger apertures and higher magnification. You need a large aperture for big game. If you go with one of these scopes with high glare, don't buy one that goes higher than 14X mag, and use a 4" sunshade.

You can make your VX-III work but it's not optimum. I would go with larger aperture and lower magnification. 4-12X50 to 4.5-14X50 would be good. I don't see why you need 20X, unless you have vision problems like astigmatism.
