I finally am ready to get a scope for my 270wsm. 700 yds is the furtherest I'll probly ever shoot in my lifetime at the little being a coyote up to a whitetail deer. I was dead set on getting a leupold 6.5-20x50 lrt scope with m1 knobs and mil recticle.. after watching a show on the history channel the other night I got to thinking. Army snipers where shooting 1000yds with a 3-10x50.. So it got me to thinking maybe I don't need all that maginification... Please give your input.. droping down to a 4-14x50 would save me a couple hundred bucks and allow me to do some of stuff to the gun that I would like to do also. Thank all of yall for what I have already learn from this sight.
