What is the minimum power scope you would use for 1000 yds for big game?
15x is the lowest power I have used at that range on game. I did not feel handicapped at 15x
I shoot 4.5-14 Leupolds and don't feel inadequate on antelope at that distance.
i have used 10x and 12x but i prefer 16x or more, clear glass is more important then magnification in my mind , you cant hit what you cant see.
Most my shots are taken at 14x. The higher magnification settings rarely used on my optics.
I would use 10x if thats what I had but I think a 4.5-14 is more than adequate.
