I am looking to get a new scope. I hunt bear and whitetail in dense woods to open fields around 300 yards. I was looking at a 2-12x42 vx-6 and a 3-9x42 accupoint. What is the better scope. I will get it with an illuminated crosshairs. Low light performance is the most important thing. What should I get? Other scope suggestions are welcome

I don't buy Leupold, so cannot comment on that scope; however, I have owned the Trijicon Accupoints in 3-9 and 2.5-10.  If low light performance is the most important thing, and illumination is a must, the Trijicon is the obvious winner for several reasons, not least of which is no batteries for the illumination.

That said, for a hunting rifle that might be taking 50 yard shots on bear, I'd be looking more for a 1-6 than a 3-9 or so.  I've hunted things that hunt you, and prefer to see as much of my surroundings as possible, these critters tend to move out of scope fields of view.

Of the 2 listed, 2.5-10 Accupoint.  It isn't small but it is hella great at low light hunting.

the accupoint is the 3-9x42 not the bigger 56mm accupoint. Ruger rings don't have ones high enough they only go up to 52mm.

I like the 3-9, but if best low light performance is the idea, the 2.5-10 is brighter.

What rifle is it going on?

You could get a pic rail for the Ruger then select some nice mounts.

yes they have a ruger to weaver mount then I could get the 56 mm but I'd prefer not to do that. I think it would be to much to stuff and make it sit to high. Maybe not haven't found to many pictures of the setup

The 3-9 is plenty bright for low light, but the 2.5-10 will be brighter.

The VX-6 1-6X24 Duplex Fire Dot would be my choice seeing as you may have to take some close shots. The optics are terrific and the reticle very easy to use. When using the Fire Dot the battery turns itself off after 5 mins of no movement and will immediately turn on again, to its previous setting, if the scope is moved. The battery in mine is nine months old and probably good for another nine.
