Leupold VX-III Long Range Riflescope 6.5-20x 50mm Varmint Reticle Review:
Leupold's VX-III Long Range Riflescope 6.5-20x 50mm with varmint reticle is a super awesome scope! It features crystal clear optics and simple operation. I've topped my Savage Arms Model 12 BTCSS Varminter rifle with this scope (22-250).
The scope features a 50mm objective and 30mm tube providing excellent light resulting in exceptional clarity. The varmint reticle is very flexible, providing several targets for distances and various windages. Once you dial it in at 200 yards and become familiar with your ammo, you'll have several other points for 300 and 400 yards as well as 5 and 10 mph winds (from both left or right).
Of course, the only major downside to this scope is that it is very expensive.
I highly recommend Leupold's optics!
