Hey guys,  I have a Winchester Model 70 .270 WSM that I want to get a scope for and was looking for a little insight.  The gun will be primarily used for whitetail hunting in Louisiana/Mississippi and low light performance is very important.  After much research on this forum(great resource) I have narrowed down the search to a Kahles scope.
Kahles
3-9x42 CL  or the
3-10x50 CL

Anybody have any thoughts as to the differences of these two scopes....or does it really come down to whether or not I think I need the 50mm objecetive???
I would also like to get some recommendations on mounts...does anyone have experience with this combination? 
thanks -ak

Fishhunter -

 

Welcome.  Yes, it does really come down to whether you want to the 50mm objective or not.  Understand the 50mm will be heavier and also rest higher on your gun, which most people find uncomfortable.  It also tends to throw off the weight balance of your entire rifle setup. 

 

I have the 3-9x42 CL.  I can assure you the low light performance will be more than satisfactory.   Go with the 4a recticle.  The three posts are easier to see in lowlight.
