Leupold however, is a little TOO proud of their illuminating scopes pricewise (at least for my tastes compared to other offerings).

If price is no object, and you're a diehard Leupold fan. Well...they have illuminated, what are you waiting for?

I wanted illuminated ballistic plex reticle, with a lifetime warranty, and a scope that is double sprung, to handle the recoil of the 450 (and last), at a more modest price. My vote goes to the Burris FullField E1 3-9x40 Riflescope with Illuminated Ballistic Plex E1 Reticle Model 200322. It's street price for these features is hard to beat.

Didn't see a need for an elevation dial for a host of reasons that I wont get into here unless asked. But will divulge, since 300yrds is 'bout the max with this round, and most animals will be taken at 200yrds (or less, by me, with this equipment). The Plex is a quick alternative way to get off an accurate shot without monkeying with dials.

I have the Lepould VX-R with the FireDot ballistic reticle. The FireDot gives you the illumination at the center of the crosshairs, but the holdover/under marks on the scope are not illuminated. I agree that trying to adjust the dials, especially if you will be hunting hogs at night, is a little problematic. With a good ballistic reticle, you can pretty much cover the waterfront with the range marks on the scope out to 300 yards with the BM450. The Burris looks like a good bet to get the illumination you want.

It's not too busy, but has what you need at night for quicker shooting. Works well in the day too in darker brush.
