    You're probably right on the scope, Troy. If I continue my western hunts I may look to step up to a little more magnification next year. The 3-9 just seems so much easier to carry around than a larger scope.

    Greg, on my Savage LRH in 6.5x284 Norma , I have a 4-12x40 Leupold VX-2, and it really isn't all that much bigger than the same scope in 9X.

    I'll look at that next year. Last year my 9x worked but I can see how the 12x might have been a plus. I leave in a month for this hunt so for now I'm gonna load up a box and stay with what I have. Last year there were hundreds of rabbits around camp and a few grouse. For that reason I just bought a small game license and have a cz-455 and a little 20 gauge all shined up and ready. Camp meat!
