need a scope

Postby LazyGhost » Sat Dec 06, 2014 4:38 pm

Ive got a nikon prostaff 3×9×40 that I need to retire. My ole lady is shopping for me a used scope. I need something thats gonna zoom in a little closer AND give me a few more minutes to see at primetime. So something a little better than what Ive got.
What should I be looking for? Budget is a few hundred bucks or so.

If the Nikon Prostaff, don't give you enough light. Then you are shooting after hours. Might just invest in a cheap headlight.

Look at Leupold VX-2 with a 50mm objective lens. If you want to go higher get a VX-3 set up with a 30mm tube and 50 mm objective.

I own 4 Nikon's and have not had a issue yet with enough light to see what I'm looking at late in the afternoon
