How much do you need? I plan on buying a Long Range scope soon and I'm looking at the Leupolds. They have the Long Range scopes I'm looking at in 14, 20 and 25 power. I know that the Canadian sniper kill (2600 yards or so) in Afgahn was made using a Leupold Mark 4 16x scope. If you're hunting Elk and moose out to 1500 yards and White tails and blackies out to 1000 yards how much magnification do you need? If a man size target can be hit that far out with a 16x scope wounldn't that be enough? I wish there was a way or a program one could run that would show you how big a 10inch target appears in your scope at various ranges. Let me know what you have to say guys. Hunting season draws near.
