Possibly the new Falcon menace in 4x14x50..but I would say mow some grass and get the NF or SnB..My dad who is 63 is mowing neighborhood yards to help pay for our elk trip,,no big deal just get the money..Plus its a hoot, he has a monopoly going.

Here's what a 24" by 36" plate looks like at 1500 yds through a 14X IOR:

The circle is 1 foot diameter. Of course in person it was much sharper, the blurriness was my problems getting the camera to focus.

It's not quite a mile, but it should help give you a point of reference. That's about exactly how it would look at a mile through a 16.4X scope.

Well I would think that 16x would be PLENTY enough! I'm not going for records and that being on 14X 16X I'm sure will be plenty. Jon thanks a bunch! and fella's thanks for your opinions. Later,
