Wow. Gotta wonder how often conditions would allow practical use of full magnification

According to them, its for benchrest shooting. Which makes sense. Pretty cool.

Absolutely. I could see a high magnification being handy for hunting, to be able to leave the spotting scope behind, although I would need a much lower number on the bottom end. I hear Schmidt & Bender is coming out with something along those lines. That'll be exciting.

that would be cool. 8-40 or something along those lines would get it done.

I'd be all over that. I believe they have 9X erectors right now. I could go for 5-45 or less.

3-27X, 4-36X, 5-45X All would be an extremely wide range of magnification.

The problem I predict is with such a high magnification (above 25X) and with only a 50mm-55mm objective, is not enough light is going to get into the objective. Look at the 20-60X Razor spotting scope, it has an 80mm objective and works beautifully.

I would make myself sick trying to look through anything above 24x. I'd have to have it mounted in a vise to use a 60x scope.

It ain't the rifle that's the problem, I have a small constant twitch

I thought about that. I figure at lower magnifications light transmission would be normal. So, you aren't any worse off than before, but when light is good, you have more magnification available. It may not be as effective as carrying a spotter, separately, but it would be a good compromise for those hunts that I'm leaving it behind, anyway.

I pretty much hunt ever sit with 11-33x50 vortex razor.

At full power you lose first and last 10 min of shooting light. At 11 power first and last 4min, but I have 11x42 binos that put me in a well before or well after situation if I'm not careful
