    advise wanted on a scope please

    im want to buy new/secondhand scope for my .222 for foxing and lamping, ive been offerd mtc mamba 3x12x44, leupold vx-1 3x9x40, both for similar money, would they be suitible for lamping and shots at 250yards at night?

    I would look for something in a 56mm objective if possible. and german glass if you can.
    250 under a lamp is a loooong way too.

    out of interest how much have you been offered the scopes for?

    i've got that mamba on my hornet and its fine out to way past hornet ranges, shooting clarity to 300yd. A mates got one on his .270 too. Theyre not brilliant on top mag and can be a bit funny about head position. I get on really well with mine though.

    I have used these two scopes and think there good value for money 8x56 is ideal for stalking and foxing, S&B 8x56 is all I use now.......
