First off welcome to the site jb2leather and jump on in and share some info with us. Things have been kinda slow but hoping it will pick back up.I’ve got a 3x9 VX Freedom muzzleloader on my 45-70 guide gun. It doesn’t hold light like my Hawke, but it does a fantastic job and holds a zero on it quite well.

I have never looked through a Hawke scope but heard a lot about them.
I see that you have been a member for a little over a year but I think this is your first post but don’t stop now.
I have used Nikon on just about every gun I have ever owned and sure hate that they got out of the scope businessThank you. I didn’t realize I’d never posted before. I got a Hawke when I bought my last rifle. It beats getting glasses.
I haven’t used the Leupold but a handful of times. Probably 10 rounds through that guide gun. But it handled the big bore easily. I’ve hunted with it about 4 times this year, and I’ll use it tomorrow.

I used to only buy Leupold scopes. The last 3 scopes I have purchased have all been Vortex Viper PST 1x6. The glass is exceptionally clear. Set on 1 power with the illumination turned on, it is perfect for very quick shots. Turn it up to 6 power for longer range. On 2 of these the adjusting ring is somewhat stiff, but they sell an accessory for that. For me Leupold just isn't making exactly what I like feature wise. The last Leupold I purchased was an firedot equipped 2x10 and it is awesome but also big and maybe heavier than I like. Your mileage may vary....Christmas money is burning a hole in my pocket and I need a new scope. Im eyeing one of these Leupold VX Freedom scopes in 3-9x40 for my old Woodsmaster 742, aka jam master. Anyone have this scope, pros/cons? Thanks
