The wife's 300 win has a Leupold VX3 6x42, with a LRD reticle, on it. The only load shot through this gun is factory Nosler Custom 200 grain accubonds. She has run it for the last 20+ years on elk, bear, and many deer. Our daughter has used it on occasion, as have myself. The gun has not missed a season.
In those 20+ years, during preseason sight verification of a 200 yard zero, the windage cap has been off the scope once....for an adjustment of 2 clicks. The elevation cap has not been removed. This gun cuts holes at 100 yards, everytime.
Her favorite hayfield is 497 yards to the far fence line. The other side of the fence is the bedding area, and owned by someone who allows no hunting OR deer recovery. Any deer along that fence, must be anchored in it's tracks, requiring high shoulder shots. She is 100% on about a dozen deer, along that fence.
Simple scope, simple reticle, and no fussing with knobs or power settings....just a killing machine out to 500 yards.
