Don't you mean no more than ?

Btw,I have a mate with 2 1-4×20 vortex crossfires and a 2-7×32 vortex crossfire for sale for $225 each if you're keen


Good choice. Down side is 20mm objective will not perform well in low light.

The 2-7 would be a better choice.

Life is a compromise.

Perhaps a fixed mag. They tend to have a wider field of view and light weight. Say, 4x40.

Have you got mates? :lol:

I had a Tasco World Class 3-9x on my 25/06 for years and it would shoot half inch groups.


I bought a World Class in about 1988. Had a few knocks in the field chaisng pigs over the years, but still working to this day.

I paid $465 for the Leopold 1 year ago. It was about $100 difference back then. The Leopold are about $550 now.
You should be happy with the Vortex.
