Its been a long time people and Im waaayyyy behind on my "scope" data...but here's what Im thinking. Im about to bring a new varminter online..a Remington 700 VLS in 22-250. I need a scope good for from about 50 yds to more than 350 yards and Im thinking a Leupold FX-3 12 (power fixed) 40mm Objective lens. Im not thinking of any ( or much) very early morning or late evening shooting so I havent looked at the 50MM objective lens model. An old time prarie dog killer I used to work with said he used a fixed 10X scope but if he had to do it all over again he'd chose a 12X ( hence my choice) What say you???
