Re: What is the best scope on the market PERIOD?

I think my point is being made by the general lack of real information.
Here is a link to one test done on OpticsTalk

The Optics Talk Forums - Multiple Rifle Scope tests from Europe..REAL TESTS

I don't think this was one mentioned earlier.

I know my S&B 5X25 PMll resolved as well as my Swarovski 20X60X80 spotter and that is saying something
I'm not saying that S&B's don't have the best glass... It sounds to me like they probably do from the over all comments a I read. But, I would put more stock in a test that tested more than one scope of each. I would think a test like that should involve a sample population of at least three each, maybe more. I would also like to see other attributes tested.

Having said that, I'm very happy with my NXS, but it would be interesting to see a good comparison none the less.

I have 4 NXS and sold the fifth one that I had. I have 6 S&B's. BOSS HOSS help point me in the direction of S&B and I have never regreted purchasing them.
