Re: Handgun or rifle scope?

Higher quality optics & reticles, more magnification, more MOA adjustments.
Down side: Danger of getting smacked in the face if you are not constantly aware of what you are doing, especially with cartridges in the 308 class on up to what I am currently using (7mm Dakota).
FWIW with the 200+ rounds with the 7 Dakota XP all rounds have been fired on 25x.
Most hunting situations would not require going to a rifle scope. It also makes you change up your hold compared to using a LER scope.
You may want to give both ways a good try before you settle on one way. I currently use both.
Hands down fav in the LER scopes is the Burris 3-12 LER with BP reticle with at least one target turret on the elev.

I agree 100% with xphunter. I used to have an old 2.5x7 LER Burris ,it was huge and very heavy but had the best eye relief of any LER scope I have ever owned, been kickin myself in the butt for years for selling it and have never seen another like it since.
It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
