Heh. For deer hunting, any equivalent to the Weaver K4 will do plenty good to 350 yards or more. I had no problem in putting a bullet into a 350-yard buck within an inch of where I wanted it, with my 3x9 set on 3X.
I've always done my walking hunting with a variable set on its lowest magnification. High magnification is fine for sight-in (but not a necessity) and for prairie dogs.
