I would, however, also recommend that you look at a VX-R 3-9x40 with Firedot duplex reticle before pulling the trigger, if low light performance is of any consideration. I would absolutely recommend a VX-R over a VX2 or VX3. And of the 50+ scopes I own including some nice Zeiss and Minox models, the VX-Rs I own are the absolute best in low light performance. Again, that may not be a major consideration for you.

Good Luck!
Is the VX-R the one with the illuminated reticle? If it is, keep in mind illuminated reticles aren't legal in all states for hunting.

Was not going to respond because I didn't want to offer another "brand" name.


I'd recommend you get a high powered scope (16-24X) for varmint / predator hunting with your 243.

All of my guns wear scopes with illuminated reticles - if hunting in states where it's illegal, I just take the battery out.

I will agree to the mounts hole heartedly. Lots of great scopes. But my opinion is to stay with good o'l Leupold. VI, VII, or VII great company and I have never been let down.
