I am putting together a bench rifle and am looking at scopes. A few people are telling me that a fixed power scope is better for a bench gun. I just found a 4-12x leupold that I like for a good price. My question is, would the leupold be a good bench scope or should I go with a fixed power?

Distance?

The benchrest shooters I know that shoot 50, 100, 200 yards will use a 36x or 40x fixed. Leupolds are popular, but the Weaver T series is a cheaper alternative with excellent glass.

If you are going to be changing distances wth your shots, I would suggest getting a scope that has click adjustments for elevation, not the friction adjustments. If you spend a little more money you can get a VX-II.
