I'm headed back to Africa in 2013 for my 4th safari and want to do some night hunting in South Africa for Genet, Civet, African wildcat etc... I have a new .17hmr and am trying to decide what scope would be appropriate. I like the new leupold vx-r 2-7x33 with the illuminated fire duplex reticle. What are your thoughts about this caliber and scope for the smaller night cats and possibly a klipspringer? I assume we will be using a spotlight so will the lighted reticle be needed?
