07-22-2003, 06:12 PM
Im decideing between a leupold 3-9x40 without an adjustable objective and a leupold 3-9x40 with adjustable objective. I ahve never used an adjustable objective before so i was wondering if they actually work and what are the pros and cons of them. Any info/advice would be very helpful.

I have had several adjustable objective lenses, and to tell you the honest truth I left it on infinite 99 percent of the time. It is handy for roughly ranging objects though. I not sure what the real advantage is though.http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/two-cents.gif

Up to about 10 power, the adjustable objective really isn't going to do a lot for you. Parallax and focus becomes more of a problem at higher magnification. For your 3-9 power scope, I wouldn't bother with it... all it is going to do is add more moving parts to your scope.

Ditto the others Hunter2003. Especially on a deer rifle all an adjustable objective does is add weight, cost and more gadgets. A 3x9 is plenty of magnification on a medium to large game rifle and does not need it IMHO.
If you were shooting small targets &/or critters at long distance you would want more than a 3x9 anyway and then the objective would also be a good idea / have value to it.
On my 2 predator / coyote only rifles, (which are larger than squirrels), I just have 3x9's on both without the objectives. I almost never get above 5 or 6 power even at semi long range.
My 2 cents and Happy Shooting
