I have been telling ya`ll for years that a scope with an AO does not belong on a deer rifle,,I have owned 36,24 and 20 power fixed scopes,8.5-25 6-24 and 6.5-20,,they all have their uses in the target world but are almost useless to a hunter..

I'll be going the 2x12x42 VX-6 direction ASAP. I'll let you know how it looks Wes. Reading reviews . . . . .

Seeing that Leupold VX-6 is exactly what caused me to not buy a Zeiss Conquest 3.5-10 x 44mm that was on sale. Have bought neither yet, but believe this 2x12 VX-6 is going to be my next scope on a deer rifle. And it's Made in America. But, Geez, Leupold is sure proud of that scope, even if it is much less costly than a Swaro!

Other than cost, not sure what the downsides may be (lots of rotation to go from 2x to 12x), but this single scope has the benefits of three longtime popular configurations (2-7x, 3-9x, 4-12x) all rolled up into a single scope.

Never happen, his box is ALWAYS full.

I had him PM me and I keep that PM in my box so I can send him a PM anytime though that same first PM thread. The last time I looked it had over 36 PM's in it going back almost 2 years.

All mine are 3-9x40 with 2 exceptions. Both of those are 6.5-20x50 and they are on guns that are really only used to punch paper.

HA! \:D
Sorry. The TNdeer.com instant messaging does stay full, purposefully, because I sometimes go days and weeks without logging in. But now if I were retired like ole Wildcat, I'd probably just live on here!

But any of my regular email addresses are checked much more frequently, including the one in my profile. \:\)
