So my wonderful wife is getting me a Remington 700 in 308 for Xmas and now i need to pick a scope. I am stuck between the Leupold VX-1 and the VX-2. Now this is my first rifle and it will be mainly for hunting and maybe a little bit of plinking/target shooting. My question is are the extra features work the extra 70-80 bucks for the VX2 over the VX1? Also, I read differing opinions on a 3x9 vs 4x12, whats the opinion here?
