    If your going to go without parallax adj. you should spend more on your scope. If you are hunting antelope with it you are more then likely be fighting mirage. I perfer side focus myselt. You don't have to move much to adj and sure helps a whole lot on hot days. It also give you the ability to shoot further if the need arises. I have owned many scopes in the power range that you are looking for and the only one that I have found to fight mirage well with out parallax adj is the swaroski. And at least try to stay with usa made products. Even though all glass is made over seas at least buy scopes that are assembled in the states. I have tried many lesser priced brands that are supposed to be just as good as leupold but have never seem to hold up or have the quality.

    Thanks for the input, boulderbeardog.
    "I have tried many lesser priced brands that are supposed to be just as good as leupold but have never seem to hold up or have the quality." I agree with that completely. I bought 2 lower end Bushnells a while back and ended up replacing them both in a few years.

    Hmmmm....

    The problem may be that you were trying "lesser brands." I have and like several Leupold scopes, but my favorites are from other companies.

    Leupold makes some good and great scopes, and others that are not-so-good.

    Vortex is much the same.

    I haven't really seen a "dud" scope model from Swarovski yet, but it could happen.

    Bushnell's elite scopes are also very good.
