Re: New Varmint/Target rifle what size scope
The guys have been telling you that high magnification fixed power scopes are no good for varmint or all around hunting, and they're absolutely right!
The field of view is small, and it's nearly impossible find the target fast enough at reasonable ranges.
I once had the experience of trying to shoot a coyote at about 30 yards with a 20X fixed power scope. All I could see at first was fur, and by the time I figured out which end was which, the critter had skedaddled.
Stick to variable power scopes for hunting. That 35X scope is really only appropriate for benchrest shooting.
