I have hunted with a VX-6 HD 4-24 for 3 years now. My primary hunting every year is for Coues deer so that was part of the drive to go with the higher power scope. If I was looking for an all around western scope the 3-18 would be a first choice as it is a little lighter and more than enough scope for 95% of all shot situations.I am in the market for two new scopes for a couple of rifles I am building/Setting up for a 2020 Elk Hunt.
I am mainly looking at three different scopes, VX6 3x18, 4x24, and the VX5 4x20
I have searched this sight and others for input about the differences.
From you experience, what do you gain with the VX6 or the VX5?
When I called Leupold, I just got a sales pitch for the VX6.
I am not too keen on the VX6 34mm tube or the price tag.
Anyone got some first hand experience with these scopes for a comarison?
Thanks in advance for your input/
