Hey there folks, I wanted to see what magnification and scope sizes others prefer and why. Not so much the brand, just the specs you prefer.
No common 3-9x40mm scope will do. It's a toss-up between a 1-4 power straight tube, or a 2-7x32. Both are compact, light, and offer excellent field of view on the lower power settings, while providing plenty of magnification for longer shots on the upper end.
Best of both wolds would be a 1-6 or 1-7 power scope. Wish they made one of those!
My next scope will be a 1.5-6.
