For all around, general purpose use. What’s your favorite scope size and why? Used 3-9x40’s for years. Lately, I tend to lean more towards a 3-12x50. But honestly can’t say the added magnification does much for me. The 50mm does seem quite a bit brighter though in low light. That being said, I’m trending more back towards 3-9x40 and going for higher quality glass.
