I was just about to pull the trigger on a Leupold VX2 4-12x40 and then I came to this forum by some kind of divine intervention. It looks like the Meoptic/Meopro name is more often recommended than Leupold. So I found a
Meopta Meopro Rifle Scope 4-12x 50mm scope and was pretty excited about my upcoming purchase and then noticed that A) this model has been discontinued, although I can still buy it. B) a comment in the comments section stated the following after giving it one star...
"I immediately noticed the price ($full) and the lack of a parralax adjustment. The only people that buy scopes without a parralax adjustment, just dont know any better. I equate this to buying a car without an engine. It looks the same but wont get you anywhere because youre lacking vital equipment. Some type of parralax is always a requirement. Get this education! So these good ratings??? Yeah, they paid this high price for recticle movement on target. Dont buy any scopes without a way to adjust parralax to the range youre shooting!"

I'll be hunting whitetail in TN from 0-300 yds. A) should i stay away from this scope due to either it being discontinued or the issue with the no parallax adjustment? If so, what is the next best option...Leupold or the newer Meopro 3.5-10x40? Thanks in advance.

BTW I'll be shooting a Tikka T3 lite .270.

whoever posted that probably couldn't find their butt with a five man working party and 2 weeks to do it! 0-300 yards you will not really know the difference anyway. If you keep a good consistent cheek weld, you'll never know it. The parallax issue shouldn't be worried about in most hunting situations.

Steelbenz is absolutely correct.

In that general price range, there are quite a few excellent scopes.  The new Vortex Razor HD LH is probably my favourite if you are OK with a 42mm objective, but both Meopta Meopri and Leupold VX-6 are very good as well. There is the very promising looking Leica ER5 (I still need to test this one though).

Many good choices.

Thanks for the feedback! I took your advice and got this guy .....Meopta Meopro Rifle Scope 4-12x 50mm..... on EBAY brand new for $399.00. Got a 14 day money back return policy in case it isn't as advertised. Looks like some of these are running a little cheaper due to the newer models having illuminated red dot?

To be clear, all Meopta riflescopes are factory pre-set to be parallax free at 100 meters (109 yards).

You will tend to find parallax adjustment on Meopta scopes once they get past the 12x-15x magnification range, so that would include;

MeoStar R1 4-16x44 (AO)

ZD 4-16x44 (AO)

MeoPro 6-18x50 (Side)

ZD 6-24x56 (Side)

MeoPro 4.5-14x44 (Side, USA only)

MeoPro 6.5-20x50 (Side, USA only)

There is absolutely no need to have parallax adjustment on a hunting riflescope in a 3-9x42 or 4-12x50 type configuration...if the optics are manufactured and aligned correctly.

Totally agree with the above post. I own several Meopro 4-12x50  scopes which are mounted on Varmint/Predator caliber rifles. I've never had any parallax issues shooting long distances.

Design and execution... which Meopta excels at...

At what distance were you looking at with the R2?
