Re: What Upper Limit of Power Do you Prefer On Your Rifle Scope?

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

Re: What Upper Limit of Power Do you Prefer On Your Rifle Scope?

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,
AJ

Grit do you mean you can't vote either?

Anyone else having that problem?
