Re: What about this scope?

I have 6 or 8 Leupold scopes and have had GREAT success with them. I have never had anything but VX-III.

Would like your input on these compared to EVERYTHING else out there.

Re: What about this scope?

Good scope. Like you I have only wanted/needed/owned leupold scopes. I also have had VERY good luck with them. They have never let me down, and the one problem I did have with the knob on one scope was VERY quickly rectified through leupolds warranty/repair shop. However, brace yourself. . . there are more leupold bashers here than anywhere else that I have ever frequented!

Re: What about this scope?

Just buy it and love it!!! Some will tell you Luepies are second rate, but I for one think they are one of the best.

I thought it was very interesting that the equipment lists of the winners @ the VHA Jamboree contained Leupies almost exclusively.

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).

Re: What about this scope?

Great point. This is the scope that I am going with.

I am putting a custom McMillan stock on my 300 win mag and along with the recoil pad hope to REALLY reduce recoil.

This gun shoots great now and should shoot even better after this. I plan to put this scope on it and try it as a long range rifle. If it does not cut it I plan to have one built.

Archeryelk,

We just got one of the exact scope that you are interested in that is brand new in the box, never been mounted, but has the wrap off the box. I can work you out a pretty good deal if you are interested. Just send me an email if you are.
