Both have Leupold 50mm scopes on them. Also have 3 FN FAL's, a PSL and a couple WWII sniper rifles..
Thanks for the response, good shooting. ElDee
In order not to jack the thread I'll PM you.

As much as I like my S&B, the NF scopes are a really great value. The S&B glass is outstanding, but there is a point where good enough really is good enough.
The 'smith that built my LR rifle insists the S&B turrets track just enough better to make it worth the extra money, if one is pursuing accuracy down to a gnats ass. For my intended use, 1000+ yard marmots, I have tried to take every available advantage to realize the accuracy potential of the rifle.
That said, the NF I use on my light weight rifle is so good I can't tell the difference between the two scopes.
