Re: Vortex PST or Leupold VX-3

I dont think you will reallly notice that small of a differance in light transmisson
but you sure will notice the lack of travel
the leupold has 25 mao more in travel
trying to get to real long range you need all the travle you can get

Look! BSA and Leatherwood are vastly optically superior to Hensoldt .

That's what the numbers say. Don't believe the numbers. Get your nose out of the catalogs and actually look through some scopes.

Yes your holiness. A Salam a laikum.

Listen, I agreed with him on which scope to pick, I didn't agree on his opinion on Leupy glass. He kept pushing and arguing. When people do that, they need to know they are being obtuse. Whatever the case, I really don't care anymore. I really don't.
