So I got a new rifle for Christmas a Ruger Hawkeye in 30-06 and I'm in the market for a new scope. All of my other rifles are topped with Leupold scopes and I've always used Leupold for all my optics for about a decade. But last March I bought a pair of vortex binos and my brother got a vortex diamond back scope for his 308. I've been extremely impressed with both of them quality glass with the best warranty in the business but I've never had a complaint about my Leupolds either. I went scope shopping today and found a Leupold 3x9 50mm and a vortex 4x12 50mm there was only a 10 dollar difference in price between the two. I know this is a big Leupold site so I may already know the answer but my question is if it was your rifle which would you choose?
