This Idaho boy now agrees with Oregon boy's review. The VX-3 is better than the VX-R. For example, the VX-3 3x10x40 on my 7mm is better at 3 power than my VX-R 4x12x40 at 4 power. Plus, the VX-3 is a bighter and has more clear picture. I now wish I had got another VX-3 for my 300 RUM or saved my money and got a VX-6 with Firedot. The VX-R is a good scope but not worth the extra money when compared to the VX-3, IMHO.
Pros: Good Scope and Firedot is a nice feature
Cons: Not as clear as a VX-3
