    Swap maybe? Vx5hd 2-10

    I love this scope for hunting the mag range is excellent for most applications 0-500yds and glass is awesome. Scope tracks well and balances great on the rifle. However, I would like to do some precision long range testing on my new rig and wouldn't mind a bit more mag and side focus for this,anyone got something they would be interested in swapping? Prefer 30mm tube so I dont have to buy new optilocks but will consider all options. Scope will come with box and warranty and voucher for custom turret. Model is VX5HD 2-10 CDS ZL2, Duplex.

    I have a mate that might be keen to swap for a vx3lr 6x18 that's in near new condition?

    Looks good. Cheers.

    Nothing to offer you on the scope front. I had a vx5 great scope. No complaints at all.
    I still run an older vx6 2-12. Which is firedot windplex reticle. Which suits be down to the ground. On a 280ai.
    It's also relatively light at 517 grams.
