Re: time for new scope, need your advice

ebay is another place to sometimes find a good deal in a new or used scope. I would suggest a good quality used over a cheap new scope. That said I have pounded the daylights out of four different IOR scopes on a .300 Jarrett, and they have held up quite nicely.

    I'd recommend the Weaver Grand Slam. A 3-10x40 will cost you around $240. That is what I have on my .270 WSM. I used to be a Leupold only guy, but I now have 3 Grand Slams and love each one of them. They are extremely good for the money. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Small world! I had fun bouncing around in that high rack.

    Save a little money whenever you can and get you a good, used Leupold. You won't regret it and they have a great warranty (lifetime). I'm about to get a Vari-X III 4.5-14x50 for coyotes and cats.

    Take it easy and we'll talk to you soon,
