I see the excitment over the 1-4x. Lots of recomended scopes mag up to 9x

My range is 300yds max. Why not 15x? 24? isnt more magnification better?

more mag is more shake.

If you are trying to make one hole groups, go high, otherwise, a 3-9 is fine.

I still like 3x9's and possibly a 4x12 for out to 300 yards. The 3x9s are what I have always used and have them on 4 of my guns. I recently bought a varminter and put a 6x18 on it. I shoot just as accurately with the 3x9's.

thanks.. I have an aimpoint and 3x mag for my up close and personal encounters but was looking for a scope for some longer distance target shooting.

thanks for the info
