I am looking at getting a Super Sniper scope to mount on my 300 win mag.  I was wondering how much the 4x more magnification will make on short shots 50-100 yds.  I currently have leupold vx-II 3-9x50's mounted on my rifles.  I do not have a problem @ 9x seeing a whitetail @ 25 yds.  I am leaning toward the 20x due to the fact that my eyesight is getting worse.  Where I used to be able to clearly see a deer @ 300 with my 3-9x50 seems more like 150 yds now.  I plan on zeroing the 300 mag @ 300 yds and having shots out to 500 yds.  How much more difficult will 20x vs 16x to get on a 200 lb target at short distances.  Sometimes I have a moving target.  Also how is the light transmission between the leupold and the super sniper.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I would suggest the 10x SS for hunting purposes. I have the 10x and would have no problems using it as a hunting scope.


I "believe" the 16x and 20x SS's would have to narrow of a FOV to make them effective for hunting.

The 16x or 20x would make fine target scopes though.


Just my 2 cents.
