What do you think about the Leupold 3.5-10X40 Mark 4 LR/T 30mm? It is apparent that the common knowledge here is if you want to play, you gots to pay! Other leupolds, or ??. Will put it on a Rem 700 VSF 308, Thinking about Badger ordinance rail and rings. Sorry about the Simmions \ BSA questions. It just seems like you get a lot of features for a very low price. Someone must be buying these things? For .22 cal rifles? Thanks again!

Gar,

The link I posted is worth a read. Leupold is good, you may want to have a look at Nikon and Zeiss Conquest also. I think there are good post here on them scopes.

Badger Rings are according to everybody and his dog the best. Have a couple of sets on order so will see.

David.

Re: Simmions or BSA?

Gar my appologies from the post on the other thread you started. But I would like to comment on the BSA pistol scope. I scoped my 500 S&W with it because I wanted something cheap to play around with. After 200-300 rounds through that thumper, it has yet to lose zero. I have a friend of mine who has shot far more through his and his has never lost zero. I would recommed the BSA pistol scope to someone who wants a cheap scope that is not red dot or illuminate. It is very accurate and affordable. I believe that I spent more for the rings and mounts than I did for the scope. It was worth the money.

Re: Simmions or BSA?

I'm looking to put together a long range hunting rifle. I am trying to figure out which of the following scopes would be best for me. I'm gonna stick the scope on either a Winchester or Marlim rifle. I don't expect to be hitting anything past 1/4 mile or so. The Simmions is a 6-24X50 AO TT. It's on sale at Natchez for $69. Good deal? The BSA is a 8-32X40 Mill dot. It's also TT & AO. It is $79. I don't be knowing if I be better off with something with more mag like the BSA 8-32 vs simmions 6-24 or a bigger X number like the X50 Simmions vs the X40 BSA. Is the mill dot something I should have? I will post the rifle question on the rifle \ caliber forearm. Thank ya all for any assistance ya all can be providing.
