I've got a Luepold VX-II LRD mounted on my 30.06 I know people who are very into guns and rifle accuracy, study ballistics charts and all that jazz. I just want to shoot a deer clean. But, these guys recommended the VX-II or the VX-3 if you got extra cash laying around. My VX-II has served me very well. I'd buy another one in a heartbeat. I hope this helps.
