My SIL has one of the Redfield 4x12's but Duplex crosshairs on his .35 Whelen Improved. He shoots the 225 Accubond out of it. He likes a great deal. I got one of the Redfield 2x7's, put it on my very accurate 30.06 to check it out. It dialed right in, very precise, very clear. I may end up putting it on my 308MXLR and putting the Bushnell 3x9 3200 on the '06. I too have a Weaver 1x3 that has held up to .416 Rigby, .458's, 444, and a 12ga H&R Ultra Slug gun. I like the dimensions of the Weaver 2x7x33, but the Refiled was available and the Weaver wasn't at the time, locally.
