I've currently got a fixed 8 x 56 on my 30-06 which has been good generally and I don't find it overly bulky or heavy but lately I've been sitting out for munties in a few spots where quick < 50m shots are required and have been struggling to quickly acquire the target and as most of my stalking is basically woodland I've been wondering about swapping it for a lower mag scope. Most of my stalking is dusk and dawn so low light performance is important. Also I'm planning on using this rifle for a driven boar trip later in the year and a hill stalking trip.
Would a 1.5 - 6 x 42 fit the bill? Any good for driven or will I still need another solution for that?
