Has anyone actually compared the clarity between a 4.5-14 in a VX-III to a Mark 4. I am looking at trying to cut some weight and cost out of a new rifle build and was thinking of buying a VX-III 4.5-14x40 LR, B&C Reticle, 30mm tube and sending to the custom shop and having just an elevation turret installed and stay with the finger adjustable turret on the side incase I need to dial in windage.
Had an issue on my hunting trip to Colorado this year when my exposed windage knob got rotated 1.5 MOA when I was rushing to pull my rifle out of the scabbard on my quad. Did not think to check it. The shot was 530 yard and I aimed for the shoulder and hit behind the ear. Luckly he was quartering toward me with his head low when I pulled the trigger. All and all everything turned out good and no meat was ruined but I was disappointed by the shot. I am thinking I want a covered, low profile windage knob on this new rifle build. Anyone have a similar issue with exposed knobs being spun while pulling them from a scabbards? The scope in the picture is getting sent back to have the springs tightened down more so that does not happen again.
Here is a picture of the mistake incase anyone wanted to see it.
I guess I kind of got off the original subject.
