Great! These are all new options for me. Do you guys like these compared the redfield 2-7 x32 for 139 at cabelas?? ALso, do you think the fixed 6x is too much magnification for shorter shots???
Redfields are pretty good. I'm not a big fan of fixed power scopes...but to each his own. Maybe for benchrest work, but that's about it. A fixed 4power would probably be better so your power is low enough for quicker target acquisition if you anticipate close-in shots.
The Redfield is a good option... if I went that rout I'd go XLow Talleys. I don't think a fixed 6x is ever too much glass... so do though. Even a fixed 4x would work well for you.
On the lower priced glass I find the fixed power a little better optically, and typically tougher than the variables... not quite as versatile though.
The fixed power scopes have less bells and whistles, should be cheaper, more rugged, more light, and more FOV.
