Here is my 30-06 with the Hogue Mold Over Stock (full aluminum bedding block) and a new Bushnell 4200 3-9x40mm. This configuration will be what I use to finish my load redo on the 30-06 which a friend has helped out a great deal by providing load data info from a program which has saved me a ton of money and time.

The reason I have changed from a VX-III to the Bushnell 4200 is as follows. I have owned the Bushnell before and it's light gathering quality is superb and it takes a lot of recoil abuse and I love the rainguard. Been frustrated a few times down here in Mississippi over the last three years since our winters are so often wet and humidity is high that I have had to try and wipe a scope to see game clearly enough to take my shot.

Also, this 3-9x40mm 4200 has given me a better felt balance than did the VX-III did but that is a matter of preference and opinion on my part. The 4200 is good glass for the money and is actually a little brighter to my eyes than the VX-III is and I can see images earlier in the morning than with the VX-III. So, I sold one of my VX-III scopes and bought the 4200.

Will do, but if it is like my last 4200, there will not be problems with it holding zero or moving and going exactly where I click.

Yes, it is fun to shoot and with the 4200 it will be a little better. I am in the middle of major load re-do for my 06 and should finish in a month or so it the weather will let.
