Hello 6-Mag
the Leupold Vari-X III are exspensive but you get what you pay for . I purchased a 6.5x20x50 Vari-X III and will never buy anything except leupold from here on in.
not familiar with nikon but the clearity of the leupold just blew me away

My rule of thumb is never buy a scope that you havn't looked though. I bought a Leupold Vari-XIII.

These are my plans, there is a gun shop in my aera that has scopes mounted on stocks for the reason of checking them out, also would like to bring the rifle in to see if I would have to change mounts, going from a 40 to a 50, some hunters say they had to go to a raised mount to do so. I'm not ruleing anything out might try 42, 44 or stay with a 40, if that's the case. Thanks for the help!! keep the sugestions comming.

I personally like a 40. It just seems normal to me. It also keeps the crosshairs closer to the barrel, which in my experiences has only helped accuracy.

Good luck!
