I only own one and it is a 2.5x8 (about 20 years old) and I have never fallen in love w/ that scope. My Huskemaw is clearer than it, but I have a gun that needs something smaller. Thanks, Brad
The Huskemaw compares nicely to the new VX-3 8.5-25 I own. It also has a 30mm tube, side focus, etc.
The new VX-3's (improved from the VX-III) is a different scope than one of 20 years ago.
I have a Leupold VX-3 3.5-10 (1 inch tube) with Holland's ART that is on a Rock River AR-15 "pistol" that we will be using for Dave Lauck's International Tactical rifleman's Championship (ITRC) this weekend. It is a 2-man team, three day competition. We will be an all handgun team, and my partner will be using the AR handgun. I don't typically use scopes with this low of magnification, but it is a really nice optic.
I wouldn't hesitate to get a VX-3 in a lower magnification scope.
