Re: A new VX3 6.5-20X40 LR
The 6.5-20 is a nice scope. I have one on a .25-06 Sendero that my son has right now. Plenty of magnification for varmints and targets. I used to use it for deer hunting (with hounds) in N.C. and I have to admit when they were 100yds or less and running it got a bit crowded feeling in that scope. I have a Vari-X III 4.5-14X40 HD on my 700P in 7mmRemMag. I sent it back to Leupold and had the target knob put on the elevation turret about 10 yrs ago. I hunt and target shoot with it, and most of the time when hunting I'm shooting in the wind. At least that was the justification for just having the elevation knob converted over. The only thing I really dislike about it is the Heavy Duplex reticle when target shooting, it's great for lowlight deer hunting. I have no problem seeing the crosshairs. That 6.5-20 would compliment the 7Mag nicely! JohnnyK.
