Re: What about this scope?
When you're paying upwards of a grand for a scope, it is prudent to purchase from a company which is likely to still be in business in a decade, or two, or three... down the road. That means Leupold.
U.S. Optics, Nightforce, IOR, and certain others make good scopes--however, who knows if these scope manufacturers will still be in business in 2015 when one of their thousand-plus dollars scopes takes a dump?
Sure, these other scope makers might indeed stand the test of time. But the likelihood than any of them will ever beat Leupold at its own game is slim to none. Leupold will likley be around eons after all of us reading this post are feeding the worms (if you know what I mean).
