I guess I did not see the part about "exclude price" and according to my post I did specify that my ranking where price vs. quality, so yes I did weight the price of the Bushnell vs the Zeiss. If money did not matter, than I would have ranked the Zeiss higher. I am actually surprised that you have the Bushnell Banner on your list. Oh, I see it is just scopes that you own.
I tried it. I took a toilet paper roll added a cross hair, though the mil-dot reticle I tried to make was just too hard. I settled for a standard cross hair.
I pulled out my old Springfield Armory scope for a comparison.
Optical clarity on the TP roll was excellent, even out to the edges. The Springfield Armory scope optical clarity was very fuzzy toward the edges.
I must give overall ruggedness to Springfield. Somehow, I think it'll work slightly better in the rain. LOL! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
Distance is not an issue, but the wind will make it interesting!
