|Scorpion8||Not yet. Was iffy about the deal so I ordered a new Vortex 3-9x40 scope for the meantime. I know the Vortex will stand up to the recoil on the Marlin 375 Winchester levergun that is it's intended resting place.|

|Hunting Man||good buy, it should serve you well for what is intended.|

|Scorpion8||So for close woods of Alaska, where shots range from 60-80 yards, the scope would serve just fine, no? Not thinking of it for the sheep mountains, just the fjords and islands.|

If I remember correctly the largest difference with the exception of a specialized reticle in some is that they are set with a parallax correction of either 75 or 100 yards. This compares to a rifle scope with a normal parallax correction of 150 yards or meters. The adjustment of the reticle is often 1/2 inch per click as was already listed in pervious post.

|Hunting Man||oh ya, I have a Leupold scope with 1/2" per click adjustment, great accurate scope. I have it on my TC Triumph 50cal!|

|Scorpion8||Seems if it was accurate to minute-of-turkey it would be good enough for minute-of-deer precision.|

|Hunting Man||Probable eye relief is greater, maybe built a bit more stout inside. Sometimes they have 1/2" at 100yds click adjustments which to me means slightly less precise???|

Shotgun Scopes for Rifles?
There is a new-in-box Leupold scope for sale near me, an Extremeslam 3-9x40 (or somesuch). Leupold lists it as a "shotgun or muzzleloader" scope. Does that mean it would be unsuitable for a rifle? Why, eye relief or shock/recoil absorbing ability? If suited for a shotgun, wouldn't it also work on (e.g.) a .22-250 or .223 rifle (low recoil) or maybe up to a .243 Win?
