    John,
    Most of my scopes are Leupold, I have had really good luck with them and don't see any reason to change.

    few monts ago bougth a vx3 4.5_14x40mm B&C 1" tube, i wanted a decent low light scope using the lower mag. for low light and the higher for day light shooting, well long story short, didn´t like it.

    next, changed the scope for an other leupold, this time a vxr 4-12x40mm #4 ret. 30mm tube, this scope have better optics than the previous one.

    i don´t know if the 30mm tube have something to do or just the vxr have better glass than vx3

    I have that exact scope on my SAKO M995 in .300 Win Mag and harvested a bull elk at 931 yards last season, in short I like it. VXL-3 4.5-14x56 will gather more light due to a much larger bell and the 30MM provides more E&W range.
