    help scope advice needed

    what scope would you chose between a leupold vx3 1/2inch 3-12x50 or a s&b 8x56 1/2inch hungarian,the scope is going on my woodland stalking rifle 250yrd shots at the most but most within 100yrds rifle is 6.5x47lapua any advice would be great

    I really like the Schmidt , I use the 8x56 on my .308 but with the 30 mm tube . Great scope . However no one can argue that Leupold are also great !

    difficult comparison really.
    same reticule?

    I have the leupold you refer to.
    on low power it will probably appear to give better low light than an 8x.

    but I am inclined to say stay with the fixed reticule for a woodland rifle but the 8x might be too high for my liking sub 100yds

    For woodland stalking you need to be able to use as low magnification as possible so the "Luppy" would be best. I have a 3-9 x 50 on my 30-06 when ever I go woodland stalking I keep it on 3. The lower the mag then the brighter the picture and this is valuable when in dimly lit woods. Just my preference. Hope this helps.

    cheers guys the leup has the deer bracketing ret and will be the one i will go for i think as most of my shots are within 100yrd and alot are much closer in woodland
