Interesting, and the same findings I had when I compared an older Vari-XII to a newer VX-III ( both 50mm objectives ).

I never really noticed a difference between the II and III series when I used to hunt with Leupold years ago. Because of this I actually liked the II series better because the power range of the scope I was using fit my needs better.

What you have, in effect, done, is offered riflescopes for sale or trade in the Riflescopes section of the forum. The rules specifically forbid this.  I am moving this thread to the appropriate "Optics for sale" section.  Be advised, this also serves as a warning.  In the future, please READ and ABIDE BY the forum rules.  You are required to agree to having read and intent to follow the rules when you sign up as a forum member.
