Re: Lynx or Leupold?
I studied the Lynx site with great interest and was very impressed, an excellent range of scopes.You've put me in my place as regards an upgrade, from the specs they offer much the same as Leupold and look very similar. The Nato range finding reticle, which i presume is what you are using, is an interesting alternative to mil-dot.
I would love to have a look through one, but i might be wrong here when i say that Britain still has trade restrictions with South Africa, so that could be why i have probably not heard of these scopes.
Is there a noticeable difference in the optics of the Leupold to warrant an upgrade or not?
I used to have a 36x45 target scope made by Pecar of Berlin, it had a steel tube and excellent optics. I sold this and bought a 36x40 Leupold when my HV bench gun would not make the 13 1/2lb weight limit and i can honestly say, that if there was any difference in the optics i could not see it.
Apart the obvious quality, the Leupold with tall or M1 turrets and the side focus just looks SOOOOO SEEEXY!
