Ok here is the story.... I do not have a scope on my new hunting rifle.... I LOVE leopold, but they cost a mint. I REALLY want something that will match the abilities of my gun I have a 7mm mag, and I go places where 300 - 500 yards is not unheard of
Find a scope that matches the quality of your eyes. Any quality scope is probably going to match your gun. I don't know about other people, but some lousy scopes just don't work with my eyes, and my eyesight is not that bad.
Sounds like you're in open country, so it's probably right for you, but I live in the mountains and brush. Carrying a 50mm here will find rocks and trees you never saw. I use a 42mm now and the damn thing still hits every rock.
Also, a cheap Leupold is going to hold together a lot better than an expensive cheapie brand. I've had some nice reasonably expensive "other" brands fall apart/explode.
There's nothing wrong with a VX-II Leupold, or one of the other old Leupold lines, or old Nikon lines either. Unlike a lot of other companies, a $300 Leupold is not any less strong than a $1000 Leupold.
