Hey boysWink,
 
I'm getting a Mark V .257 WBY for my b-day.  I have to get a Leupold because I can get one for 1/2 off (I spent all my $$ on the rifle).  I'm thinking a VX-3 4.5-14 X 40 in either LR or CDS.  I want the CDS but am worried about parralax error @ 400+ yds (the CDS doesn't have a side focus Head Banger). 
 
I will mostly be shooting deer and antelope and goats and sheep and prairie dogs and coyotes (in that order of frequency) with my new Roy. 
 
I know the maximum parralax error for those ranges is alot and the minimum error is zero, but what is the error range that can be expected from a good shooter? I can live with 3" on any given day- shooting that isWink.
 
Sorry, boys, if this is a dumb question but I hope you all can help me decide- I really would rather have the CDS.

The question concerns parralax error at the highest magnifications of these scopes.
