I’ve always been a fixed 6x rifle scope user up until the last 2 years. I’ve tried variables and they are nice, especially as your eyes get worse. But I miss the simplicity/ruggedness of the fixed scope.

I have a couple 6x SWFA and they are great. I have switched to the 10x, because of my eyes. I really like the 6x, though.

I probably have 15-20 different 6x scopes, so I am rather fond of them.

Multiples of Lyman/Redfield/Weaver/Leupold fixed 6x. Have used for years, not too much even in MO/AR whitetail thickets or WY griz country, just familiarize one-self with the weapon.

FOV probably the most over-thought aspect of scopes.

I put a 6X on one of my coyote guns last year....I thought it sucked donkey balls, took it off, and sold it.

I can't imagine trying to run a fixed 6 on a coyote gun.

Aalf, perhaps you have some really long shots out there? Watched my brother dump two coyotes back to back with a TC Contender Carbine 223 with a 6x42 LRD, furthest out no more than 200 yds IIRC.

I must confess, more deer have fallen to my using 6x's than any other fixed or variable. Used 2.5x thru 10x fixed on deer, and variables up to 24x because that was on the 6BR that I happened to do a good bit or range and varmint work.

Regarding FOV, I dropped a nice 8pt at 15 yds with a 6x ..........centered the shoulder......all over.

Dad is 70 and hunts south east Minnesota mostly.
Shots are generally under 150 yards.

So mine sit on 22s and coyote rifles now.
