EMN89, take a look at the Leupold 2.5-8 power. I think it's the FX series. I have one on my 45-70 Winchester High Wall and couldn't be happier. This is a very light gun and the eye relief is more than enough to keep you from getting hit. I think it's a tad over 4" on the lower power. It is one of the clearest scopes I've ever owned and I've owned a lot of them in my 64 years. FYI: try shooting some 405 grain bullets loaded down to around 12-1300 fps. They are almost pleasant to shoot and will completely pass through a whitetail from stem to stern. I'm getting some unbelievable accuracy out of my reloads. I have or have had four 45-70s and this has become my absolute favorite caliber. I just ordered a Pedersoli 1886/71 in this caliber and it's coming in next Tuesday. I'm getting a safe full of this caliber in different configurations. You're gonna have a lot of fun. Good luck.
