Where I hunt in Montana is the higher altitude plains (not yet to the Rockies). Long flat shooting is almost the only shot presented. I've taken plenty of muley's with the 3x9 at the 300+ yard mark with my .270, but I just wanted some additional input as to what others thought.

Thank you.

back when i hunted antelope in wyoming, we mostly would just drive the big ranches trails and when we saw one we wanted would simply shoot either off the hood of the truck or off sticks on the side of the rifle was either a 6mm ruger with a old 3x9 redfield.or a parker hale 7mm mag with a 4x12 weaver. both worked well and i dont recall anytime where i thought i needed more magnification.if we saw one go over a rise or something before we got a good look i would most often grab a highly customized and lightened 7mm mauser,with a fixed six power german scope that i cant even remember the name of,and wished for less once in a while when i was winded and trying to steady that rifle for a shot . little rifle weighed around 5 1/2 pounds,so it was real nice to carry. probaby depends entirely on your style of hunting,i prefer to not shoot at long distances,and probably the longest shot i recall making was MAYBE 300 yards. if you regularly shot longer ranges,maybe more magnification,but keep in mind that as you increase power you decrease field of veiw and on a antelope you may need all the field of veiw you can to pick up a moving one in your scope quickly.
