Anyone using that scope ? If so what's the pro/cons
Thank you in advance for your help .
sorry this is a wrong post

I have this scope on mine. 40mm it is. It is the ideal setup for my needs.

I have this same scope minus the side focus in 40mm on my new Tikka T3x Superlite and it is a great combination and zoom range for this caliber in my opinion. Shoot, it is a great zoom range for a lot of calibers!

Its tough to argue against a Leupold 4.5x14 scope on just about any rifle. Whether on a rifle used for big game or on a smaller caliber, more varmint related hunting rifle. For me the 40MM objective is the only answer to that part of the equation.
