This is a bogus comparison. Besides the fact that the March 10-60x52 has long been discontinued and Mud was inquiring about the March 8-80x56, which has a larger objective, you're trying to compare the brightness of an older 52mm objective at max 60x power to the ATACR with a larger objective and only a 5-25 mag range. Of course the larger objective at 40% magnification is going to be brighter.

Re: Any experience with March scopes?

Might take a look at US Optics--they have an option for an ocular that allows for about an inch more eye relief--which could be handy on some specialty pistols. What cartridges/bullets are you getting these chambered in? I have riflescopes on several of my SP's. Ernie Bishop and Darrell Holland just placed 2nd in the Wyo. Tactical Rifleman's Championship with Ernie shooting a Holland-reticled Leupold 4.5-14x on a muzzle-breaked 7mm Magnum custom SP.

There is an option of purchasing a Leupold 24 or 36X Siebert LER conversion (40% less power), but the eye relief is so critical that they are only useable from the bench really.

March Rifle Scopes Long Range 10-60 x 52

Doesnt look discontinued to me.

As far as the bogus comment,,,you dont have to like it,,its my opinion the Atacr has better glass across the board on any power setting.YMMV.

I thought it had been discontinued since it was introduced in 2008, but it appears to be still available. Its specs aren't nearly as good as the 8-80x56, however, which is the scope thar Mud was talking about. Opinions are like a__holes, everyone has one. I questioned yours however, since a comparison of brightness between scopes should be based on comparable specs and uniform field observations. A 25x with a larger objective is generally going to appear brighter than a 60x with a smaller objective. Trying to compare the two is about as useful as judging the quality of tits on a boar hog. As to the quality of the glass between Nightforce and March, I believe March to be superior, however, both optics are highly rated and have excelled in bench rest competitions. If I had to choose a Nightforce though, it would be the Beast, not the ATACR.

We are building some twin 284 Winchesters
Nesika NXP actions
Havent decided on bbl manufacture but finished at 15"
Holland radial brake
Aron Alexander center grip stocks
Jewel triggers

The main purpose of the guns will be hunting so we dont want scopes that are only useable from the bench. We,ve looked at USO, but didnt know you could get extra relief.

Re: Any experience with March scopes?

WOW : 60X - 80X and no Mirage . Maybe in Desert Country on a cold morning just as the Sun is coming up . The only System I've ever seen with No Mirage was at a 100 Yard Range in the NorthEast and it was a Remote Camera System ( I think it was Nikon ) placed right near the Targets and sending a Signal to a TV Screen near the Shooter . I will say a Swaro Spotting Scope did a little bit better to cut thru the Mirage than anything else I looked thru out of all the Scopes there , but it was still like looking thru a Fog .
