LOL. I know Fed AutoMatch isn't the best but it seems to be pretty darn accurate in this gun so far. Also have a few other brands I intend to try (CCI, Eley, etc) but havne't gotten around to it yet.

On another Calguns section I asked which was better for this rifle. The replies left me feeling that the Vortex barely had the minimum magnification needed. This section seems to prefer 2-7x. I'm confused. Should I use the Vortex or the Leupold?
I didn't necessarily prefer 2-7x but found a good deal on the glass so went with it. At 7x things can still be a bit small at 100yds, but you can hit clays on the berm all day long and then go back and hit the leftover pieces easily. The range I go to most of the time maxes out at 100yds so it works for me. If you're looking to shoot further than that regularly you'd probably want at least 12x minimum.

Thanks for the responses re magnification. I'll use the Vortex until a good deal comes along for maybe 16x or a little higher. Since I still have a lot of recovery left from back surgery it'll be awhile before I can make it to the desert anyway.
