I use a Leupold VXII in 1x4 for closeup hunting. Although the objective is miniscule compared to what we are used to (20mm), its very bright. I believe that the lower the power scope, the smaller objective you can get away with (I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong).
Anyway, I like it because I can put it on 1x and shoot with both eyes open when I'm in REALLY thick stuff. And I can put it on 4x when I'm sitting in a little more open area.
I use the scope on my Muzzleloader, but it would work just as well on any rifle.
Its really light and really short.
If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.
My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives
