Have you been naughty or nice?
I'm always on the nice list.  Chris though?............not so much :chuckle:

Just might have to pull the trigger.

I've been eyeing these too..  Debating between the 2-12x42 (Length = 12.5", weight = 16.8 oz) and the 3-18x44 (Length = 13.5", weight = 20.4 oz).  I currently won't shoot past 400-500 yards, and spend a fair amount of time hunting timber on the Westside.  Any thoughts/suggestions?  That price on B&H for the 3-18 is the best I've seen for either.

For the savings I think it would take awhile to notice the 4oz difference between the 2-12 and 3-18. I just couldnt pass up the price at B&H

I have the 4-24 and love it. Wouldnít want anything else. I have the TMOA reticle itís sweet! It has the 34mm tube so think of that when buying. Nightforce has nice ultralight rings that are 34mm

For those of you that own both the VX5 HD and the VX6 HD, is there a big difference in glass clarity?

Dont quote me but I dont think the glass is any different between the 5HD and 6HD. I think the difference is in things like the 6ís ability to auto level the scope during set up and some other features that i cant remember. I have the 30mm 3-18x50. Awesome scope. With no previous experience i was dialing the turret and hitting targets out to 700 on the first day. Firedots a cool feature also.

i own both and glass is the same just extra other things on the 6. The new 4-20x52 VX5HD should be a great scope
