    Recently I read about Leupolds 3-18X scope. What other brands have a scope about this magnification?

    IOR Valdada. And don't let some negative reviews from a few years ago scare you. There were some issues with the FFP models, but that has been well taken care of. The glass is Schott from Germany and it truly is as good as Schmidt & Bender, I have both and compare them regularly.

    The new Vortex Razor will dominate all 3-18's. The only downside to it is weight. If weight concerns you pic something else.

    How heavy is the Vortex. In the same money range wouldn't the Leupold VX-6 be better? Just asking, I'm in the market for the 3-21 range. I'd love to standardize several rifles on 2-3 identical scopes and reticle.
