    No all Leupolds are created equal. VX3 and above are amazing but I have had some of their cheaper models and wasn't impressed.

    It was Scheels - they have the scope for $319 but no more gift card. Might have been a cyber Monday special?


    I do feel that the VX-3 is the beginning level for a good hunting scope.

    Damn I was at Scheels that day. Grabbed that Nikon 4-12x40 for $109 just as a backup or incase anyone needed one. Didn't even take a look at the Leupolds. I was at the register with an armload of shotgun shells, noticed the deal in the flyer and the kid ran up and grabbed one for me.

    Thanks!

    I ran mostly Leupolds until I started dialing elevation. I have had some issues with the CDS on a VX 3 and a couple VX-6 scopes. I found a 3-12x Huskemaw for $719 and went to that on my mountain rifle. It has had zero issues so far. I really like a scope I can dial elevation on but that has a covered turret that I never have to worry about accidentally dialing. It's always set to 200yds unless I chose to remove and dial it. The covered turret on the VX-6 was one of the big reasons I tried them.

    Leupold is a great company and makes a great scope. A guy on another forum that has a lot of experience with scopes and is respected says not to dial elevation unless you are buying a scope built specifically for dialing. Putting a turret on a standard scope is asking for trouble in his opinion. He says the VX-3, VX-5, VX-6, Swaro Z5, Zeiss V4, and many others don't have erector systems specifically built for dialing. If you shoot enough they will eventually cause problems.
