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.
