Re: Too much

Personal preference. Not "too much" but a compromise. I switched from 3-9, 4-12 and 4-16 to 6-24x50 a couple years ago and now even a really good 3-9 makes my skin crawl. I am fine with 6x on the low end. In other-words I personally think the compromise is worth it but very few and hopefully none of my shots are that close when hunting.. I will never buy a variable powered scope again that does not go up to at least 20x.

Re: Too much

There is no one perfict scope for all uses.

I personally like the 1.5 x 7s for dangerous game, the 4x14 for general hunting at all distances
and at least 20 power for all target shooting beyond 600 yards.

I have 3.5x14x56 on most of my hunting rifles and find there bottom power of 3,5 to be perfict
for running shots and the ability to increase to 14 power for longer shots.

Just my opinion.

Re: Too much

D.ID I'm starting to lean towards the 6 low end I guess I could always sell it. I'm thinking if I buy the 4x I'll never know. This is kinda the last scope I will buy for a while. like I said its going a 270 Wsm for now..My next buy will be rifle either 7mm 300 mag or 300 Wsm the most I will get is a 338 just wanting to set up a rifle before I retire again in the next 2.5 years .

Re: Too much

Well one thing is for sure, if you get the vortex you will have enough scope for any rifle at about any range and if you decide you do not like it, resale should be very easy.

Re: Too much

Will waiting and looking it finally paid off... I got an open box deal from cameraland. I was able to get an open box Vortex 4x16x50 FFP-Moa I figure it was a safe deal being that it was cameraland..Can't wait for it to get here..I'm Like a kid waiting for Christmas. Now to save $$ for the next buy a 300 wsm or 300 ultra...Savage maybe. For now it will go on my 270 wsm Browning white gold medallion with an Octagon barrel..
