Hi Everyone, I need some help making a choice. I'm trying to decide between 2 Leupold scopes for my Weatherby .224 Varmintmaster with a 24" barrel. The first one is the 6.5x-20x Vari-X III and the other is the 4.5x-14x Vari-X III, both with fine duplex reticules. Normally I would go with the 6.5x-20x but at 14 inches long I think it might be too long for the rifle and be cumbersome to use for use in mixed woods coyote hunting. The 4.5x-14x is a shorter scope but I don't think it will have enough power for precise 250-350 yd shots. Any suggestions? Thanks, CEJ..
