greybull precision scopes

I ordered a Cooper Phoenix 6.5x284 a few months ago. And Im looking for a good long range hunting scope. I Was thinking about getting the greybull precision scope. Also looked into the G7. Im new to shooting past 500 yards so anything would help. Is the g7 worth the extra 800$? Any info would help. thanks

    Their scopes are made by Leupold and come with a custom reticle and knobs.

    Is it worth the extra? I don't know, but Leupold's quality and customer service are hard to beat.

    Just ordered my 3rd Greybull scope. 1st on 25-06, 2od on 7mm Wapati and 3rd on 338 Sin. I like them and like the Leupold Warranty. The Nightforse are good but I went with the Leupold.

    If you like Leupolds then go with the Greybull. Kind of apples and oranges compared the the nightforce. Love my NF, like my Leupold. But, the NF is twice as heavy, it's huge, just different.

    Thank you. Guys. The greybull is only around 17oz and g7 is around 32oz around. I like the weight of the greybull. Has anyone had problem with the clicks or returning to zero.

    On the three I have I have not had any problems. I hunt only and do not shoot competition so I don't use the knobs as much as some other members may.
