One thing to remember about magnification range
is that in that last second of legal shooting time you got to have a low enough # to gather the MAX amout of light for YOUR EYE to process so you can tell if it is a legal Bull or not or all the power in the world will not help you. That is what the $709 Lupe and the $350 Nikon 800 RF did not do for me. I have upgraded all that I can afford - trading my FINAL hunt $$$$ for the $799 Leica CRF 1600 (great Glass)and the $2,228 Victory FL Diavari 4-16x50T* with Rapid Z 800 Ret. .....now I'm back to 10' tall - bullet proof - and can see in the dark -
My eye function requires me to have a scope that has 3, 4 or 5 power as a bottom number so that I can see
clearly for the "Final Time on Target"! Now, ALL the monkeys are riding on my back!! Kill or Miss! I like it that way.
Good Luck with your choices.
