It was love at fist sight, this VX3 and I have hunted africa together for the past 5 years. The clarity, reliability and versatility of the 4.5 - 14 vx3 makes it a winner!
I bought this scope 2 years ago. mounted on sako 85 30-06. mainly using for deer hunting. it is a great scope, but I found it quite heavy for deer hunting rifle. especially when need to climb high mountains. Also I found illumination useless in spotlighting as it is brighter than the animal and can't take clear shoot. All in all good scope for the money.
Last night I realised that I bought my Leupold VX111 3.5-10x40 over 20 years ago. It has been mounted on my Sako 270 Winchester rifle from day 1 & has not moved since. I hunt in cold & dusty conditions most of the time, & every so often it can also rain & when it does it pours. I really enjoy using quality equipment & Leupold is just that, plain & simply well made & designed to last. It continues to be a pleasure using this scope while hunting & I can see myself using Leupold products into the future.
