Re: leupold vs. simmons which is better?
Maybe it depends on your frame of reference? What do you mean, "good, or better"?
Do you mean, design? Durability? Optical clarity? Ability to hold zero and warranty? Or, you looked through both, and couldn't tell the difference?
Some people think that you get what you pay for. If you see an advantage in the less expensive optics, it should not matter what others think.
Back in the dark ages, when nobody had ever heard of Leupold, they all used Redfield. I converted a lot of people with just a look down range.
But, things change, I guess? I have casually looked through a Simmons, and they appear to be decent, but I don't know if I'd actually buy one.
Good hunting. LB
