I'm trying to decide on a Leupold scope and I'm curious which one you would recommend? It will be riding on a AR15 SPR that LaRue built. It will be used for predator hunting but where I hunt there aren't many places to shoot over 300 yards and most shots are around 100-150 yards. I DO want something with a good amount of low light capability but I already have a Nightforce scope with a 56mm objective lens and I dont want this scope any bigger than 50mm- I'm looking for something that's light (unlike the Nightforce) and more of a general purpose scope. I'm looking for a variable power like a 3x-9x.

If I go up to the VX-III in a 42mm objective lense, will it perform comparably to the VX-II or Euro line?

I almost for sure will go with Leupold because I'm part of an outfitter program that gets me better than retail pricing on Leupold products; but, if you think there's a better option than Leupold (for the $$), please let me know! But also post your recommendation on which Leupold model!!

Thanks!

Mods - Can you please delete this thread?

When I got home I had a new Leupold catalog waiting for me and the Euro models are no longer available to me and there are several new models and lines out.  Besides, I made so many errors trying to post from my iPhone while bouncing around the ranch today, that my original post makes very little sense!  Lol!  Sorry about that folks!  I learned my lesson- I'll wait till I get home to post long questions. LOL!

You can't go wrong with the Leupold VX3, but for my money i would go with one of the Zeiss Conquest models! Better in low light, higher quality glass, and better eye relief, and is also pretty light!
