    Len,

    It completely depends upon the chambering/quarry and terrain. Since the higher power is rarely much more than 4 times the lower power, and I like having the ability for a low power of around 4x, that limits me to around 16x on the high side. I occasionally would lke a touch more, but not often for big game.

    Also, for some reason, I'm not allowed to vote in this poll.

    AJ

    My upper limit is actually more set by my lower limit. The NSX 5.5 -22 is ideal. If it was 2.5 -40 it would be even better. But, I won't go with an 8-32 per se to get more magnification, because I need the lower end also.

    20 - 22 is plenty on top. But, more wouldn't hurt.
    4-6 is as high as I want on the bottom.

    I can see the results and it says I may not vote in this poll.

    Thanks,

    Grit do you mean you can't vote either?

    Anyone else having that problem?
