You can always add factory turrets to any Leupold scope. Takes about 3 weeks and only costs $90 for a CDS elevation dial- very functional if you choose to use it, also very low profile if you don't need it.

You won't need turrets with the Swarovski BRX reticle.

Your VT should make 350 to 400 but they run out of steam pretty quick out there. Your magnification will depend on the target size and how middle-aged your eyes are--ask me how I know. frown I like 20X top end (for varmints not predators) on my .204's. YMMV

Found the scope I'm getting. I'm getting Nightforce NSX compact 2.5x10x42...with talley tactical rings. May Change my mind on the rings...but man do they look sweet with the crossbones. N heard they are one of the best on the market.

I ordered a Cooper Montana Varminter .204R a year ago. It arrived at my gun dealer today. I went there to pay the balance and do the paperwork. I have never held a cooper before. I had only seen pictures. The rifle looks super awesome. fit finish and really nice walnut. Don't limit yourself to 10x, as you will be driving a hot rod. You might want to see what they are eating before you ruin their day.

I hope it doesn't take a yr for my rifle to get here, but that's probably how long it'll be. I was told 9-14 months. Hate waiting...but good things come to those who wait smile. A 10 day wait huh? Wow.Here in PA it in an out same day lol.

Yeah I thought the 10x was a bit weak...I definitely want a nightforce for my hot rod lol. I was looking at the NXS 3.5-15x50...is that too much scope for my VT? Or do I need more. If someone can look on the nightforce website n point me to the perfect one.

If you are open to other scopes than NXC. I would check Leupold Custom Shop. You can build the scope to your specs. and they mail it to your home.
I ordered the VX-3 6.5x20-40 LR. with the varmint hunter ret. and M1 elevation. side focus. for less than $1,000.00.
The 40 mm keeps the scope close to the barrel for better cheek weld.( just my opinion )
I own four leupold scopes and am very happy with them all. The new scope for the cooper .204R is the clearest scope I have looked thru.

Picked up the rifle yesterday.Going shooting this week end.




Breaking in the barrel last weekend. shoot five,clean,shoot five.clean. for the first twenty rounds. per Cooper manual. Target pic is shots 11-15 @ 100 yards. first shot on clean bore is high next four in the same ragged hole.
I was only able to shoot thirty rounds due to summer rain down pour.( we were in high desert on the Mexico border )
I'm just getting to know this rifle. I'm thinking the squirrels are in big trouble.
