I've recently had a lot of people ask me what is the better scope....the Leupold VX-III 3.5-10x40, or the Leupold Mark 2 3-9x40 hunter and the 3-9x40 T2?  I know that Leupold has the Mark series under the tactical section, but they do make it clear that it is a multi-purpose scope for tactical and hunting.  Most of the guys that asked are buddies that target shoot quite often and hunt MI whitetail with bigger calibers like the 7mm rem. mag, 7mm WSM, and 300 win. mag.  They just wanted to know what scope is better for them. 
 
I would appreciate if somebody would just explain the better scope and list the pros and cons and diiferent options of each.
 
Thanks again

I'm not too familiar with these forum searches and did the best that I could and couldn't come up with anything answering my questions.  So if someone wouldn't mind helping me out and answering these for me, or helping me find the link to this thread.
 
thanks

the mk2s are basic v-lls the v3 are quite a bit better, really not any comparison.  can't say which would be better for them, check the leupold web site for the exact differences. the t2 has a half height elevation and regular windage to fit into scabbards. the power ring is also bigger than v2s.  leo markets it for those who hunt with "black guns"

Bear in mind that Leupold's Custom shop will install either the target knobs with covers or the M1 tactical knobs on most of the VXIII line which would be my preference. The Mk2 doesnt do much for me. There is a 4.5-14x40 that is in the Mk4 line up and used to be in the PR lineup which would make a fine hunting scope and has the covered taret knobs.
The fixed 6x with target knobs might also be a good value and last I checked there was a used one on samplelist.
