Right now Im considering the Leupold V3 4.5x-14X Matt Duplex Its will be used mostly for Varmints like Marmonts and Jackrabbits.............but will also to used for Antelope and Mule Deer and who know's maybe an Elk in a pinch. Would the 6.5x-20x be any better??
I also need your imput and an understanding of AO on a rifle scope......is there a big importance to the AO as Leupold offers scopes with and with out them. What are the advantages and can you get by with out one............................Are they really necessary..?? Are they really important
First, the 4.5x14x50 is my favorite power range for hunting.(Low enough for running shots and high
enough for long shots. The 6.5 x 20 and higher are good for position shooting but to much for hunting
In my opinion.
Second the adjustable objective adjust the parallax out and the side focus does to but In my opinion
is easier to use and normally comes on 30mm tubes that have more elevation and windage.
If you buy an 8x or lower you normally don't need parallax adjustments. The 9+ power can use
the AO or SF feature.
