    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I don't know exactly as yet (the price will begin with a 2 though) as it is part of a larger order but will let you know when I have the detail.

    They are good scopes Rushy, the later ones are far more accurate in their dial calibrations and the glass quality seems to have improved.

    I could not find any advertising info proving the step up in glass quality but low light testing proves it has, or my eyes have improved

    Another Leupold offering -the 3-18 VX6 is a real gem and will probably be quite the go to scope for ultralight rigs

    Turrets are average at best, im hoping the CDS turret will improve it a bit. They are alot better than a VX3's turrets tho. The more i wind them up and down the better they feel, they were shit right out of the box.

    You can either choose single turn with a zero stop which only give you 20moa of elevation or double turn which has no zero stop.

    In what way? Mine seem to be totally repeatable but I have never owned anything "better"

    Click feel is all im talking about. I have not tested the internal adjustment yet. The VX6 should be more reliable than the VX3 tho.
