Same here. I have 3 3/12x42's. One i had Darrel Hollands ART Reticle installed. The others are A8. A finer scope you won't find.

I have 3 of the 3-12 Klassic models all with the Holland ART reticles in them.

They have accounted for a bunch of game out to 487 yards and as close as 45 yards.

Mine have the click adjustable and zero stop turrets.

The glass is great and very effective in lower light conditions.

Mine have been bullet proof in some pretty rough conditions here in the USA and while hunting in Africa and South America.

I'll be using one in New Zealand in about 4 months and have no doubt they will perform as great as ever.

Can't go wrong with these scopes.

My comment on 'carrying $$$$ in the woods is, you ride a 10K ATV in the woods, you carry a 4K rifle, expense is entirely th the level of the owner.

Some hunters are at a 4K level. some are at a 20K level, it's all relative. Bottom line is the cull, not the equipment to get you to it.

I love, love, love S&B scopes. I don't think you will be disappointed with that scope one bit. There are other great scopes out there, but when I think of scopes, I think S&B.

The S&B is an excellent scope for your application, tough as nails and great glass for low light. It's pretty much as good as it gets. The #8 reticle is a good one, it's a duplex type with heavier posts than normal. It shows up well in low light. My personal favorite is the #7 reticle, take a look at it.

That scope sells for around $1800 in the U.S.
