I have a Meopta Meostar R1 (3-10x50 Ret. N°4) and I want to change it for something with an illuminated reticle (I live in Argentina and here it is legal to hunt during the nigth). The riffle is a Rem 700 Sendero in .300 Win mag so I want to get something that also work for long range shots. My thought would be a Leupold VX-3 4.5-14x50mm Side Focus Illuminated Reticle ($950) or a VX-6 3-18x50mm (30mm) Side Focus CDS Illuminated ($1300). Which one have better glass? The VX 6 worth the difference? Any other suggestions? Thanks a lot for your help.

The VX-6s I have seen have a better image, IMO.  

They also have pretty constant eye relief as well.

For a dedicated LR rig, however, I would look at a tactical scope.

I doubt you can get the SWFA 5-20X50 in Argentina, so I would look at Vortex PST scopes, or Sightron's SIII line of scopes.  The Vortex illuminated reticles are very nice.

Bushnell's tactical scopes are also good options.
