I don't own one yet but may one day so I have been studying them. To take full advantage of the product I would suggest you take a good look at the reticle choices. Talk to some dealers that sell them. You can also go over to the snipers.hide forum and do some reading and post there. There are more S&B users on that forum.

For what you are doing a better Leupold should be fine. Nightforce would be fine as well. Not sure I would want to be carrying a 4K scope around in the woods.

Please keep us posted.

I own several S&B Klassiks - they are one hell of a scope!!

If you want a hunting scope that is reliable, tough, & has awesome glass, get yourself one!!

Look at the A8 reticle - its a heavy duplex hunting type reticle.
