Male, black-chinned hummingbird in flight

Hummingbirds & raptors are my favorite wildlife subjects for photography. We have had an amazing number of battling hummers this September during the migration to Mexico

Price isn't the issue. I already bought him his choice of a Winchester 9422, Marlin 39D, 39 Carbine, or 39M when he gets older. None of those were cheap by any stretch of the imagination.

It has a Leupold VX2 2-7X32 and I'm looking at some Vortex scopes, either 16 or 24x max magnification. I haven't decided if I want 1st or 2nd focal plane. I have a 4-16X Viper on my 308MXLR and it's...

The scout is a very tempting alternative, my biggest hesitation being weight. It's 5 lbs v. 2.7lbs for the Rascal.
