Re: New Leupolds\'s Boone & Crocket Reticle
Guys: Good scopes;bad scopes; and Brent, you are right. You know, perhaps it is the left over pizza I just had for breakfast, but I have to tell you I am completely sick of the BS about what makes up a good scope and I have read testimonies from people with fifteen year old Weavers claiming that they cost under $200.00 and work great. Great reputation, Great internal components, Great assembly and Great quality control is what it takes to make a Great scope. Without these attributes, you have a scope that will probably shoot 1 or greater groups, will most probably shoot two different groups, and will fatigue and fail within eighteen months of shooting. Yet IF you are the average shooter / hunter out there, you could live your whole life and never know / realize it. But the fact of the matter is that there are only a few good scope manufacturers turning out professional grade product and those are probably Night Force, Hensholdt, Schmidt Bender, and the Leupold M4. I cannot testify myself about USO because I have never owned one. But for the most part, reputation, both in quality and in business practice is everything and you should be listening to the people that have owned them and what they have to say. Colonel Chandler of Iron Brigade armory builds the finest quality products he can possibly build, stands by his products and lives by that creed. So does Badger Ordnance, Night Force, Tactical Interventions and myself; and so should you.
