Question by iloveguns22. Uploaded on October 24, 2010
I know that the 3-9x40 is more popular, but I prefer the 2-7x33 on a big game rifle. It's more compact, lighter and more than adequate. I like Leupold in the VXII and VXIII series.
leupold VXII in 3x9x40. BEST SCOPE EVER.
and most reliable
I've got a Bushnell Elite 3-9x40 on my .308 and have no complaints.
the best thats reasonably priced and quality for the money
Mine wears a 2-7x33 VX-II Leupold.
IMO~~Bushneii Elite 3200 fire fly 3-9x40 this will
look good on your Tikka T3 or Vanguard?
I like the Leupold models and I think that the best buy in a quality scope is the VX-II. The 3-9 model sells for About $299. at Cabala's.
I ever replace what's on mine now it will be either a Nikon Pro-Staff or one of the new Redfields, probably 3-9x40.
If you are using the .308 for deer hunting like I do you would be pleased with a 3X9X50 Nikon Buckmaster. I have found the 50 lens gathers more light at dawn and at dusk when the deer seem to stir the most. I have both the 40's and 50's and the 50's do gather more light. I have been using Nikon's for years and yes you can spend more for scopes but I have had no problems with them and they do have lifetime guarentees if you do. I have Buckmasters and Prostaffs and haven't had any problems with either and the Prostaffs cost a little less if cost is a factor for you.
J4 a +1!
The Leupold VXII 3x9x40 is by far one of the best and most reliable scopes. With first hand knowledge and watching hundreds of Leupold VXII 3x9x40 come through the range and in the field in Alaska, they have earned my respect hands down! I've put my 2 Leupold VXII 3x9x40 through everything from Arctic conditions of -80ish to Desert +110 to swamp land and banged around in 4x4's and ATV's they haven't failed me yet!
I agree with all the Leupolds. VX II or III in 2-7x or 3-9x. I actually have a 3.5-10x I like too but don't notice much difference from the 3-9x.
Does Leupold offer anything with a bullet drop compensating reticle?
