    Default Leupold VX-3i cds

    Been looking at a few rifle scopes I've narrowed it down to a couple but the leupold vx 3i cds is the one I'm favoring I really like the custom dial system it offers, I will be using it on my 300 win mag I don't really plan to shoot past 400 yards. Does anyone have insight or reviews on this scope.? Also its power comes in 3.5-10 or 4.5-14 what one would be better for the range I'm shooting thanks.

    I have 2 of the 4.5x14 and like them. Great scope and I am going to get another one for my son’s new 7mm-08 rifle build.

    All my rifles wear a vx-3i w/ CDS now. I love it, works great, very accurate. I prefer the 14x.

    One of each, .300WM and 6.5 CM. No complaints out to 600 yards.

    I like the 3.5x10 but have both. Eyerelief on the 3.5 is slightly better than the 4.5. Its really a matter of choice. Cant comment onthe cds, but leupold's vx3i is tough to beat.
    get over it commies..

    Make sure you get the side focus. Or at least look at them.
    You can't get lost if you don't care where you are going.

    If you only plan on shooting to 400yds, I'd go with the 3.5-10 for the added eye relief. I'd also consider skipping the CDS and going with the a compensating reticle like the long range duplex or B&C. Depending on your load, 400yds isn't much past PBR for a 300 Win Mag.

    What would be the advantages to have the b&c reticle compared to the cds?

    I have always asked the same question. However, I just re-scoped some of my rifles with the CDS since it has some good reviews.

    My good friend uses the B&C and has used it at all sorts of ranges and it was spot on. I have a Zeiss with a similar reticle and like it. You still have to spend range time with either CDS or B&C. You get one free dial with the CDS after that it costs you. I prefer the CDS myself

    It does not take much of an elevation correction to get to 400yds in a 300 Win Mag. For that limited amount of elevation correction I'd prefer not having to worry about the turret tracking or getting bumped inadvertently. Just my $0.02.

    If you planned on shooting further, I'd suggest the CDS turret and windplex reticle in the Leupold line up.

    I just put one of these on a custom 300wsm. I've been extremely impressed with it. For the weight and the money I can't say there is a better scope in it's class.
