    WTB: Leupold VX-5HD 3-15x44

    Looking for a good price on the scope. Problem with having one excellent scope is that you want to have something that is at least equal on the next rifle. I fell into the trap.

    I have one for sale, firedot duplex, new in February, alumina caps, only been to the range. I am currently waiting to hear back from someone though.
    I sold the rifle it was on on Sunday
    I was tempted to put it on one of my other rifles but don't want to remove the rear open sights, and the scope would be overkill on the 30-30 or 22lr!

    Took my 3030 out yesterday with the vx6 1-6. Awesome man and that Oceania Defence can suppressed it amazingly.

    I have zero issues with it on a good 22LR
    Define "overkill", it's an awesome scope at low light (which is when my 22LR mostly gets used anyway)

    Overkill = a $2k scope on a $300 rifle
    Overkill version 2 = a 3-15 magnification scope on a rifle where the average range to deer has been 20m.

    oh yea, if my 22LR was a $300 rifle, that may have been an overkill.

    tbh i'd probably want to get a better rifle in that case, not a worse scope
