I have several deer rifles, and I use them in different areas for different reasons. On my 300 ultra mag I have a 4.5 x 14 x 50 leupold Vari x III. I use this rifle on bean fields where shots will be long. I have a Zeiss 3 x 10 x 40 on my 300 win mag for shot less than 500 yards but more than 200 yard. And I have a 3 x 9 x 40 leupold vari X III on my 30-06, which I use in the areas I hunt in North Arkansas. I rarely use the Win Mag, but it shoots great and I just can't part with it.
