Can you guys with the more experence tell me if I would see much difference if I up grade from a leupold VXlll 3.5x10x40 to a new VXlll 4.5x14x50 ?  I have the older 3.5x10x40 already.  I want to mount a scope on a Win. mod 70 featherweight 270wsm.  Would the 4.5x14x50 be to much scope for this rifle?  Want to set it up for hunting out west if I ever get the chance.  Also I was wanting to know if the leupolds new low profile VXL have scope covers for them with the odd shape and all.  Thought about maybe one of these on the 270. 

 

Thank you for all advice,  Lonzo

A 50 is going to transmit more light. Are you going out west or aren't you? That to me is the question. The caliber should be awesome. Plan the trip, a 50 VXL should do great out west. If you are hunting Deer, Elk, or Pronghorn, out west the distances can be handled with a 40, but to me it is the magnafication that you need more of, so in theory a 50 would give you more light when you turn up the mag to 6 and above. I hope that you go out west.

 

Blessings, Stubewan

Thanks Stubewan,  I hope that I'll get out there one day.  I've hunted here in IL. for the last sixteen years and have alway wanted to go west.  There's always been something come up where I've put it off another year.  I've alway used a bow or slug gun here and would really like to try a rifle hunt.  It's gonna happen within the next couple years for sure.

 

Thanks again, Lonzo

 Too much scope ...... never ..... just don't use the extra magnification if you don't need it .... but it's there if you ever do @@@  Like asking if extra horsepower is too much ....
