I put a Vortex Stikefire with a 2X magnifier on my Granddaughter's 6.8 and I truly believe that although, the Voxtex is adequate for whitetail hunting the 2X magnifier is worthless. At 50 yards she can string a 5 shot group into a 5 inch target without the use of the magnifier. Using the magnifier is more challenging and restricts the sight picture IMHO.
A red dot can be an effective hunting tool for large game at longer yardages without the use of any magnification.
God, Family, Guns, in that order.
