Looking for a scope with illuminated reticle for hunting deer and for my two boys to use.  I thought the illumination would help them out and help focus their eye.  The ability to dial would be nice, but not necessary.  I like the looks of the 4-12x40 cds Leupold VX-R with fire dot.  Wouldn’t mind one step up in quality from that scope.  Any ideas?

VX-R is a good scope. IF you like Leupold, next step up is VX-5HD which I really like.

You should also consider Trijicon Accupoint 3-9x40 which as an aging, but still very competent design.

Sig Whiskey5 is a good option if you are OK with the color.  For some reason a lot of people do not like the grey.

If you can step up in price a little further, Meopta Meostar 1.5-6x42 and 3-12x56 are absolutely superb.

Love my Leica ERi.
When you are dead, you don't know you are dead.It is difficult only for others.

It is the same when you are stupid.
