    Default Leupold VX-I

    Does anyone have any expierence with the VX-I? I was thinking of getting this scope. The primary use of this gun will be black bear hunting. I am looking for a cheaper scope and hoping this one will work. Thanks

    For a cost effective scope you cant go wrong. I've had a vxI 3x9 on the wifes 30-06 for quite a few years and still working wonderfully. I took my spring blackie with her set-up. Go for it.

    They're good scopes for the money, the only downside is they don't have 1/4 MOA click adjustment. Not near as bright as a VX-III, but still a pretty good scope. Do yourself a favor and get one with the Long Range Duplex, which is only another 20 bucks at Cabela's.

    They are a great scope for what you are looking for. Really, it's hard to tell the difference in the glass between I and II. Friction dial instead of click, but who cares once it's sighted in for short range bear.

    I wouldn't go with the LR Reticle, unless you don't mind a parrallax adjusted to 175 yards. I put one on a muzzelloader and the slight blurriness bothers me at 100 yards and less.

    Just my 2 cents.....................Al

    Most Leupold Scopes are adjusted at the factory to be parallax free at 150 yds. The exceptions are rimfire scopes (60 yds), shotgun/muzzleloader scopes (75 yds), and handgun scopes (100 yds). It doesn't matter if you you have the LR duplex or not, or if you have a VX-I, II, or III, they are all adjusted the same. If you don't believe me, read "Understanding Parallax", on pg. 24 of the Leupold Riflescope Owner's Handbook. Parallax doesn't have anything to do with a scope or the reticle being blurry, as this is easily adjusted by focusing the ocular lens. Hope this helps.
