I have a Leupold VX-3 6.5-20 with a target dot that my broter in law wants to buy from me. I think it is a good scope for te money and I probably will never be able to afford a nightforce. But I would consider maybe a sligt upgrade in magnification to maybe the same scope only in the 8.5-25 version. I am wondering if that would be really worth it or not? Are there any disadvantages to only being able to get down to 8.5? The added magnification on the top end would be kind of nice. I have been shooting the target dot reticle as of now. I would maybe consider using te varmint reticle so that those 400-500 shoots would be a little more efficient and then get the rest of my dopes figured out from there. Any thougt from anybody?
