The Redfield if tight on money. A Leupold 3X9X40 or 3.5X10X40 would be what I would use and have on a dozen or more rifles. Just got a bobcat with a Leupold Varri X-II 3X9X40 on a Tikka 6.5X55 this week. Could not get a shot at 3 different bears.
A 30cal will reach out and touch them. A 50cal will kick their butt.
