    What does every think of the Vortex Viper 3-9x40? I'll be putting it on a Sako A7 in .308, and being that I'm 15 I plan on it being my primary hunting rifle for years to come. I've got around 350 bucks to spend on a scope, and the Viper is listed for 3 bones on Amazon right now. Should I get it? Or does someone have a better recommendation for the same price range? I haven't read many reviews that have put leupold ahead of vortex. All thoughts are appreciated as always guys, thanks!

        Personally, I don't think you will find a better 3-9x40 scope for that money. It's actually way better than most hunters need unless they do very long range shooting. I've tested them next to the Nikon Monarch, Leupold VXII and VXIII, Bushnell Elite and a variety of others. They have a very wide field of view with amazing clarity, a great hunting reticle, and a top notch warranty and above all accuracy on par with the Leupold VXIII. I feel and shoot more like the Leupold VXIII for about half the price. Leupold better get to work or they may not last competing with this scope.

          My last two scopes have been 2x7 and 1.25x8 and I don't miss the extra magnification at all. Nor the extra weight/bulk. Check out some of the smaller or even fixed power scopes before you plunk down your money. Unless you are taking really long shots they will be all the scope you ever need.
          That being said the more popular 3x9's often have good deals on them during sales. Good luck whichever way you go and enjoy the new Sako.
