I just got my 4.5 - 14 x 50 vx3 back from leupold with it's new target turret. For my 300 wsm
, out to +/-800 yards, it will do what I need it to. I think power and quality of glass wise, you're in good shape. I personally prefer a larger objective for a hunting rifle to gather a little more light for those early/late shooting opportunities, but I can't say that I've ever beaten the price you paid!
