Hey, I have a Browning A-bolt-II w/B.O.S.S. chambered in 300 Winchester Mag. I'm just curious if anyone has had any experiences with a 6.5-20x40 vx-III leupold on one of these guns.  I had some issues with a swift 4-12x40, it would not hold its bearings and at the range I had a 12" group @ 100 YDS.  Now I have a 4-12x40 japanese tasco on it but it doesn't reach out there like I want it to, but it holds its bearings and I got a 1.5" group @ 200 YDS. with a 180 gr. federal. I would like to put a leupold on it, just wanted to hear if anyone had any good luck with a vx-III on an A-bolt.LOL

I don't know if your asking for a recommendation here, but I'm going to give you one.  Stay away from Leupold if you are using this for a hunting rifle.  There is much better glass out there for the money.  The Leupold's are robust, but so are many other scopes.  If you are open to recommendations give us a price range and some features you are looking for and we can throw some out there for you to look at.  Welcome to the OT!

I have a VXIII on a Ruger 300 Win Mag and a VXIII on a 50cal Encore my other 300 Win Mag has a Leupold Mark 4 FFP. I have had very good luck with the VXIII and Mark 4 scopes. The one A-Bolt that I had was .375 H&H and I could not get the rifle to pattern well ever so I finally traded it off.

Thanks for the input , I'm torn between a nikon 6-24x50 and the leupold 6.5-20x40 vxIII, in your opinion which is a better quality scope, they both have a lifetime warranty but the leupold has a 30mm maintube and the nikon has a 1'' and both are the same price!!!

My price range is about $650.00 or so and i will be using this for a hunting rifle, I like side focus parrallax adj. dont really like adj. objectives, and I will be taking some long range shots with this rifle, so Im thinking I need a higher power scope. I'm open for suggestions!!!

Either would be a good scope, the leupold will have the better resale value should that ever arise. For a hunting scope it will be good if the adjustable objective locks or secures.
