I have a Leupold 8.5-25X50 LRTM1, a 6.5-20X50 LRTM1 and just picked up a 4.5-14X50 LRTM1. I have the opportunity to trade the 4.5-14 in on another 8.5-25X50 LRTM1 and am seriously considering doing so, but first I would like to know what you guys think about keeping the 4.5-14X50 for shooting out to 1000yds? Will the lower magnification work, or is it less than ideal? I see threads where guys are using 3.5-10X50's for LR work, but it seems that the higher magnification scopes are the norm for most LR shooters. Opinions please!!
