Purchase a 3-9x40 Rimfire version a week or so ago for my cz452. I found the optics very clear for my tiring eyes. My first Leupold scope but definitely not my last after using it. I think they are great value and quality. Now I am thinking that I need 2-7x33 for my 336 30/30. As funds permit will also replace the Tasco 3-9x40 I have on a 222.
