The Elite's are great scopes. Had a 10x on a long distance shooter. Never had a complaint. Sold it with the rifle.
For everyday hunting. I prefer a small package. The Leupolds in 4x and 2x-7x x32 fit the bill quite well.
As mentioned earlier. I have a Browning Micro Hunter in 300wsm with a Leupold 2x-7x x32 that work quite well together.
