I think alot of the fixed power metality in the military comes from reliability not in being user freindly. Im sure if given a choise on a 1000 yard target most would prefer something with more power the a 6x. Alot of that mentality came from back in the VN area when reliable variable power scopes werent made. todays variables are alot more reliable and if im not mistake even the military uses them today and even did field some 3x9 redfields back in the day. I know if i were in a combat situation and my only arm was my sniper rifle id sure want to be able to crank the scope down lower the 6 or 10x.
