charles said:To each his own, but I feel that a 6X is right in the middle of being useless. Too big for a low power and not enough for a higher power. Why not get a 3X9 or a 4X12 and have the best of both ends. I think you can spend your money wiser.
Have you ever tried a good quality fixed 6x40 or 6x42? They are one of my favorite scopes. I also love the leupold M8 3x riflescopes. I believe in most cases though the leupold 6x42 is superior to any variable I've ever used....... Try one and see how you feel about it then.
