Re: Which VXIII 4.5-14?
Ditto the 40mm scope - less weight, less bulk, sits lower thus makes for a better cheek weld. Something else to consider - when it comes to gathering a few more minutes of shooting light with the 50mm. Do you really want to take that shot if by the time you make it to where the deer/elk was, its going to be dark anyway. Personally I don't like trying to track in the dark, or as far as that goes, start gutting and quartering an elk in the dark. Just don't think it makes good sense to shoot at a game animal with just a few minutes left of shooting light. If its right before shooting light in the morning, more than likely that elk or deer will still be there unless you spook it. I've had both, sold my 50mm and bought another 40mm scope. Just my opinion....I could be wrong...NAH.
