Re: Schmidt & Bender 16x PMII Scope
I don't have either, but I've been trying to sort out the same issue. Between the 2 scopes you mentioned, the 4-16 and the 5-25, you lose one power range on the bottom, and gain 9 on the top. Myself I've decided I want the top end. That said I don't think 16 would limit my hunting range given my current capabilities. When the conditions and target size fall into place dial up, and dial it back when they aren't.
