Re: New Leupold vs. Burris

And here is putting the money where the mouth is. I was deciding between a new Burris Black Diamond 6-24x50 part# 200934 and the Leupold 6.5-20x50 Long Range part# 51621. Both have 30mm tubes, side focus. The Leupold has 65 MOA of adjustments. Not sure about the Burris 52 MOA? The price is parity with both at $669. I went with the Lupie.

Quickad, I looked in my Lupy catalog and #51621 is the 30mm LRT 6.5-20-50mm Trg Dot has 72moa, price $799.99 in Midway catalog, the one your getting must be the 1' tube 6.5-20-50mm mil-dot ret. 44moa $699.99. The 3.5-10-40mm LR M3 is the only one with 65moa. check it out. Jay [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

JCB,

When comparing, be sure to center BOTH reticles in the scopes. Don't have one of em off center and then say it's crap. Put bot sets of turrets in the middle and then compare after refocusing both.

I also am a big fan of Burris. I like the fact that all mine repeat like a broken record. No adjustment on the zero's on my guns!

Re: New Leupold vs. Burris

Cybra,

As for "beating the hell out of a scope", My black diamond 8-32 was on my gun when I had big problems getting a muzzle brake off and so I made a socket, put a 1-5/16 wrench on it and beat it with a peice of steel to get the brake off. (A gun's just a tool, right). The scope still points where it did!. I had to have my brother hold on to the gun while I pounded on it to get the thing apart! I just wasn't in the mood to take the scope and waste time.

Hows that for taking a licking and keeping on ticking!

Jay,

Typo on my part, 72MOA. Leupold part# 51621 is correct. 30mm tube with target dot and side focus. If you are paying $799, you are paying way too much. Even if you just do a yahoo search for "Leupold 51621" you can find them advertised for around $715. I got a great deal on a new-in-box. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Re: New Leupold vs. Burris

BTW, Jay, you also made a typo. The Leupold 51621 is 6.5-20X50, not 6.5-26. And it doesn't look like a German WWII hand grenade nor a Maglight 3D cell flash light.

Re: New Leupold vs. Burris

Have sold six Leupolds, And replaced them with Burris.

My Black Diamond was run over by a one ton. Was still on zero.

Plus they don't make better people than Larry at Burris....
