Default New scope for my old rifle

Well Boys,
I picked me up a new scope for the ole 30-06 at the gunshow this weekend.
Got a Leupold VX II in 6-18x40 with an A/O and the long range reticle.Mounted it on the gun and will probably go shoot it in next weekend.I gave Dad my old
Vari X II 3-9X40 and he will probably come down and shoot it in to.We gonna take the shotguns to and let the daughter shoot her new 20ga.Should be fun.
Rock
