I heard we're expecting a nasty spell. I'm tied up Monday but I have time Tuesday. I will try to call Monday afternoon/evening.

Re: New to this, and looking for excellent scope....

Perhaps I should have started a new thread, but it seemed to fit well in this older one.

I have had the Premier for several weeks. Got it on 12/20. I'd like to tell everyone that I have been out frequently to use it. However between chilly temps and very heavy winds, I have mostly been relegated to staying inside. I have managed to get out on 3 different occasions to shoot it.

I'd like to do a thorough review, but given my lack of experience with high quality scopes I'm afraid my baseline is just too low.

Coming from a 30 year old fixed power (x4) Redfield is not the proper comparison, but it is the comparison I have. I really, really like this scope and now that I have real turret adjustment, I'll likely never look back at a typical "hunter" type scope.

Anyway, hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, and thank you for the advice and some of the invites to come to Gillette to test a few scopes. I appreciate the offers and help.

Glad you like the Premier. I just picked up my new 7 SAUM last week and put the March on it. Call when you get a chance Outlaw and we'll get together. I'm liking my new rifle. 8lbs 14 oz w/ the scope. Just about right to pack. Bruce

Absolutely Bruce. On a side note, I'm working on something you might be interested in. I will shoot you a call or PM soon.
