Although they are not very popular in today's super variable world, I am going to put a fixed power scope on my next 30-06. It will be a 6x. Few quality fixed powers seem to exist anymore. I know Leupold makes them, and they are a quality scope. Does anyone have a recommendation on Meopta or Docter fixed power scopes?
