I have the FXII on a CVA Scout V2 that I had rechambered to 444 Marlin. I love the 4x it is fast on target and has great view from 25 to 125 yards. I haven't shot out past that so I cant say out to 200. I went with the fixed power because of the recoil. I found a screaming deal on Ebay from a pawn shop that had it listed.

For the Encore hands down the 2.5x8, if you were talking revolver that might be a different story.

What caliber Encore?

Note that the variable has more parts to break under a heavy recoiler. I even broke a Leupold 2X once on a .30-30. I remember at one point JD would not even consider a variable on his .375...

The Variable is also heavier and bulkier. I have used all 3 Leupys: 2X, 4X and Variable. All are good; all have pros and cons.

Just my 2 cents honed by experience.

It is a 445 Super Mag. The barrel is a 14" full bore from MGM and I'm shooting 315 gr. hardcast bullets. Recoil is noticeable, but not by any means unbearable. Like I said, I have a Leupold DPP on it now with almost 200 rounds down the tube with no sign of issues. I should leave well enough alone, but I KNOW this barrel would shoot bug holes if I put a scope on it. . .my yardage would increase to 200 yds. easily with better accuracy. It's only time and money - LOL!
