i have a 2.5 to 8 on my .338 mag presently and really like the set up. so i have experience with this luppy model. i am about finished with a lightweight 300 wsm, but have no experience with the 3-9 compact luppy model. you know ounces are ounces... the compact being lighter, but am i sacrificing field of view, optical clarity, etc... for lighter weight over a 2.5 - 8 ?? all of you that have experience with both, steer me in the right direction as to which to get and why ,,, please !
