    I’d go bigger. Those guns have good range on em & wider view for more light.

    Either one of those would be fine. If you're going to do any still hunting, I'd think 2-7. But if it's all out of the blind, I would go 3-9.

    What type of hunting do you do? Stand hunting, drive hunting, still hunting???
    If youre going to spend most or all your time in a stand or blind then go 3-9× or even higher magnification. If your gonna be shooting at moving targets get a 1-4, 1-6, 1-8x scope... Or if you want best of both worlds like I did get something like a Leupold VX-6 2-12x

    Oh, yeah. Iowa. I forgot. Y’all get together with your 40 closest friends and chase every deer out of a woods patch and shoot at ‘em while they run past...

    All stand hunting, for me. There’s often a shot walking in - or out, like at lunch time. But no block-and-drive nonsense for me. Stand hunting only. Or mostly.

    Well in the timber 9x is plenty... But Ive always been a fan of 12x for open fields and longer shots.
    The 1st 450 I owned had a 1-8× and it worked great other than 1st and last light since it was just a straight 30mm tube and no bigger bell objective lense to suck in the light.
