OK, my new scopes are, 1 new Leupold VX-2 4-12x40 with Adjustable Objective, 4 new VX-3i 3.5-10x40 Leupolds, and one new Vortex 4-12x42. I already put one of the VX-3is on my Remington 700 ADL Synthetic, and one on my Weatherby Mk V 300 Mag. I have two that are still in the box they came in Plus I have the one Vortex 4-12 still in the box. I also have put the VX-2 on my .270 Win. That scope just looking through it looks as good as the VX-3is. I'm sure that in low light there will be some difference, but I like the adjustable objective which makes me want it on the rifle I use most. I still have plans to buy one more VX-3i. But that's for another build I have planned.

Here's a list of all the guns and scopes currently mounted on them. I have other rifles but I don't normally hunt deer with them and one has a scope that I will not move because the rifle it's on is perfect for it.

The Rifles:

1966 Model 70 Push Feed .270 Win. (Currently VX-2 4-12X40 AO)

98 Mauser .280 Remington (Currently has Leupold VX-1 3-9x40)

Savage 110 7mm Rem. Mag. (Currently Redfield Revolution 4-12x40)

1 Redfield Revolution 4-12X40 (Currently mounted on Savage 110 7 Rem. Mag.)

OK There's the rifles and the scopes. Which scope would you put on which rifle? I'm not saying I'll agree, but it will make me think and it will be interesting.

Daddy, what's an enabler?
Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.
