    Olight m3x for spotting and a 4greer rangemaster on the scope, they both reach out to 350 yards.
    And yet another 7mm-08 user...

    And yet another 7mm-08 user...

    Olight M22 Warrior on top of your scope is astonishing.
    I bought one from a lad on here and it's the best torch / lamp I've ever
    used .. will pick up fox eyes at over 350 yards.
    Highly recommended.

    The Lupine is 4500 Lumens. That is truly staggering.... as is the price though at 800!

    I thoroughly recommend Fenix TK75. 2900 Lumens which is about 50% brighter than typical car headlights. It completely swamps my (very muddy) discovery headlights. About 150 plus 4 batteries. You can easily see fox eyes at 700 yards, possibly further. I can identify rabbits at 200 yards with it using a top end scope.

    One consideration before getting an aspheric with a pencil beam: I have a couple of DEFTs, I forget the specific models. One's a big lump, the other readily mounted on the scope. They create a beam of light visible from the side. When scope mounted or held anywhere nearby, the view from the scope is looking down through this tunnel of hundreds of yards of reflected moisture + dust etc. The only way to overcome this that I have found is, when possible, to have someone else move a few feet away from me with the torch, so that the convergence of the beam and the scope 'beam' happens as far away as possible. I'm contemplating making a remote control pan/tilt pencil beam spotlight to sit on the roof.
