[QUOTE Jon A] Though, I really don't expect a $1500 improvement in glass quality. It's the not breaking part I expect for the money.
No $hit! That's got to be a major understatement. You've been drug to hell and back with three different IORs. :eek: If anyone deserves to be completely content with a scope, I'd say it's you. So I hope this S&B turns out to be the cat's meow, or better!
I've looked through S&Bs at Shot Show but that was inside a building. I'd need to have them side by side with an IOR, and outdoors, to really compare the two. When it comes to glass, you've picked the top of the line with S&B, based on everything I've researched and read. So I bet it's gonna be a kick butt scope!
