      Both are great scopes. I shoot them both. However, I have a 3.5-10x with a 50mm objective on my muley rifle. Not all here agree but I know I have easily 15-20 minutes of additional hunting daily because of the better light collection. I was unable to take the biggest muley I ever saw with a 3-9x 40MM. It was still legal shooting time but I could barely make him out with my naked eye standing back in the trees at 200 yards. When I put my scope up, I saw nothing but shadows and could not take a shot. Now, with the 3.5-10x VXIII 50mm, I see much better in those conditions than I can with my naked eye. Note this will only affect you if you are early AM, late PM or in very dark timber on a very dark and cloudy day. I'm not taking mine off my muley rifle no matter what they say. Sometimes light can make a difference and I want to be prepared for every legal minute of hunting.
