    Yah, or Nah

    That is cheap for a rifle and scope. If your just itching to spend $200 I would go ahead and spend it on or save it for something I really wanted or add it to what your planning to spend on something you really want and upgrade. I at the stage that I want less but better quality. A couple...

    Bigger advantage in a VX-3i Leupold riflescope?

    I like a 40 for a hunting rifle. I had a few 50s but have traded them off for 40s. I view it as a personal preference if your not trying to keep weight down or working up a lightweight rifle.

    Used Optics

    I have purchased five scopes off another websites free classified. I look at the sellers post count and I have been pleased with every one I bought. I have bought mostly used scopes with lifetime warranties. Actually all except one all where Leupolds.

    Preferred Rifle Carry System

    Im another Kifaru user. I use it on my MR Sawtooth 45. I got it last year so I dont have a lot of expereience with it. I needed a way to carry my rifle hands free so i could use my treking poles. A sling didnt work for me and having my rifle strapped to my pack was ok but not very handy.

    8x42 or 8x32 binos

    I would go with the 8x32 since you are still planning to keep the 10x50s. I have the 8.5x42s and used them exclusively for a decade with no regret. I dont do much long range spotting.

    New rem 700. Something doesn’t seem right

    When I got my new 700 xcr ii the bolt was not smooth. I had to loosen up the action screws they were way tight. Smooth as silk after. I since replaced the stock with a mcmillan edge and it operates smoothy as well.
