Trying to decide if the Vortex Diamondback 3.5-10x50 will be enough to make me happy. Should I spend the $100 plus more for the Viper in the same power range? Hunting whitetails in NC.

I would think the diamondback would be sufficient for hunting, depending if your budget is tight. If it isn't why not spring for more. What is your average shooting distance? I personally prefer a smaller objective lens though.
