Hello all.  My lovely wife of 9 years got me a hot rod for our anniversary.  A Savage 12 LRP 6.5 Creedmoor.  I placed an order for a SS 10x the same day the gun was ordered.  The rifle will be here in about two days and the scope is back ordered.Sad  This gave me too much time to over think things.  For some reason I keep second guessing that I should have gotten the SS 3-15.  I have a SS 3-15x42 on another rifle and love it I also love the 10x.  ADHD sucks!

Is there a question in here??Whacko

Yes there is...

Is the Super Sniper 10x adequate at 1000 yards?  What does a steel target look like at that range and power? 

Paper punching only.

If your punching paper you'll be fine with either. I had no problems at the match I normally shot with with the 10x42M I used to have on my rifle. It now sports a 5-20x50 SS. A 10X scope will make a target at 1K look as if its at 100 yards at 1X.

Thanks - I can't believe I didn't think of it that way.  I would LOVE to have a SS 5-20.  It will take some time to save up the money.
