Hi all just found you today and have been browsing for the last few hours. Had to join. Nice site etc.

I'm in the research for a new scope. Either Hunting or Tacticle? I'm interested in a 4-14 x 40 roughly for my 30-06 Tikka. I live around the 59 parrallel and there are no trees, so the caribou can see us from very far away.
I just saw this on the Leopold site and would like some comments about it "

After your response I'll have a few more questions. I've already been doing a bit of research but need some more input.

The new Leupold reticles are great for hold over and work as advertised.  Takes the guess work out of the equation.  It is not as precise as ranging the target and dialing in the clicks but it is really quick and works well for hunting.  If you get one of the Leupold M1 mil dot scopes you would be more accurate but it would take more work and practice.

 

All of the scopes you are looking at are first class with the exception of the CMO.

 

I think you are right on track with the power range you are considering too.

After a lot more research I'm probably going to get the
IOR Valdada 4-14x50 Tactical Scope, 30mm tube, illuminated MP8 reticle

Can't wait. I think I'm going to cheat and just charge it.
