Owning a Vari X II in 3-9X on one of my Remingtons I can second that opinion.
No longer offered by Leupold as the Vari X II as of a few years ago, it is made now and labled as the Leupold Rifleman and modified with a slightly ergonomic shaped tube. Both are a great quality scope at a very reasonable price.
Want a quick and inexpensive call for Moose? Take an empty 32 ounce coffee can, and make a small slit in the bottom, only about a quarter inch. Then, take one of those really big red rubber bands, the ones that go around big folders. Cut the rubber band to make one long piece.
Now, thread one end of the band and tie a knot on the outside of the can so it won't pull through. Cut the band off on the other side so it is even with the top of the can.
Now, wet your finger,...
