    Thanks for all the feedback,
    You have thrown up a couple I had not thought of or had discounted.
    I like the look of the scopes with a straight tube. 1-4 or1_6 etc but at the same time a top end of 8x would be nice for the odd 200 mtr shot.
    I have a 2-8x32 Nikon but find the BDC duplex reticale great in good light and for precision work. However it's a little fine and sometimes a little gray toned which makes it slow in low light. the light level is very good but the retical is too fine. I have a 4-16 Nikon that has a much blacker crisper reticale.
    Shoot a tahr at 230-240 mtr and only had it on 8x. Field of view was getting too small as I was shooting through some scrub. Too hard to find them when I zoomed in.

    Plus i'm getting to that age here my eyes can no longer make use of an >8mm exit pupil.

    Thanks for the offers of scopes. as I don't yet have the rifle I will pass at this point.
    I have my eye on a 99. in 308, just waiting to see how much he wants for it.

    @Sarvo, If your scope doesn't have or find a home, I would be interested in it.
