Browning, tell me what scope I need please. I guess 40 years of dropping deer in their tracks with scope set at 2 power hasn't taught me anything. OK maybe in Wyoming and Montana I cheated and turned the scope up to 4 power. Maybe I can actually shoot a gun?

hey whatever works for you,I'm not knocking it.I just prefer more power as do alot of guys.many of us use 4x or 2x7,etc especially with a gun that can consistently group at over 100 yards.I've killed plenty of deer myself with a fixed 2.5x but my eyes are not what they used to be.
I'm in no way questioning your hunting ability or marksmanship.good luck with your sale.

2x7 leupold is ideal

If fixed, 3-4 is about right, depending of course where you hunt. in the thick stuff a un magnified dot scope is good

My H&R 20ga prefered the lightfields, but the hornadys did ok also witha bit more velocity. The Lightfields would do 3" 5 shot groups through a 100yd tunnel. Tough to beat the performance for the $

10 Ga, we're cool. Gets me when guys buy $1200 scopes then go out west and miss, then find out they should actually go to the range and learn to shoot. I see it every time I go to Cherry Ridge. Sako, I'll try the Lightfields, heard great things about them. Love the Leo 2-7s, have a few.
