Thanks i have looked at the vortex and i have a few on other guns and relly like them just seeing other options cant own them all ha. Cant do nothing with a gun across tour back sling good at times you rightIf I were scoping a brush gun, Vortex Razor LH 1.5-8x would be at the top of my list. It is really a compact and light weight scope. Optical quality is remarkably good. Capped turrets, solid mechanics... Great basic scope. The G4 reticle is somewhat unconventional, but really functional for fast target acquisition and making snap shots.
Vortex also makes a 2-10x and 3-15x in this series - though they are both bigger in form factor and only the latter has adjustable parallax.
These days I just use a reflex sight (3moa dot) for pushing bush, but I understand the desire for more flexibility. Previous to the reflex I dabbled with peep sights, 'scout' mount... I tried a few different conventionally mounted scopes too. In that configuration I found Leupold's firedot really effective (I have a VXR 3-9x). In fact the magic of the fire dot is what got me onto the reflex idea.
Short story long, I don't have a sling on my brush gun - which is of little use slung over my shoulder! The sling is good at making noise (swivels) and hanging up on branches. I carry the rifle my hand(s) and appreciate the ~1lb weight savings of scopelesness. Also it goes in and out of a scabbard like a dream.
Dont get me wrong - I am recommending a scope... Just sharing a little context in what I've found effective through years of success, failure and the desire to improve.
If you like the idea of a firedot, (which can be handy when you can't make out your crosshairs against a background of black spruce) Leupold's VX6HD 2-12x may be worthy of consideration. I have no personal experience with this line, but a few members here really seem to like them.
Sorry you haven't received more input here, but this is LongRangeHunting after all! I'm fairly new to the LR game, and I've learned a lot from the members here. I'm thankful for that, and happy to contribute where I can. Good luck in your selection!
