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

I confess I didn't read every post. That said, there is no "best scope". There are best scopes for different purposes. If I was to buy a scope for GREAT glass and repeatability to $1,200 yards it would likely be a Hensoldt (Zeiss's military scopes), These are as tough as a NightForce with much better optical quality.

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

I never would have dreamed a couple of years ago when I started this thread that it would have been such a popular thread with so many pages and posts. Since then I have acquired many scopes but for the rifle and purpose I got this scope for I think the S&B scope was as close to the best scope on the market PERIOD for me. I didn't end up mounting it on my custom .264 win mag as I figured I would I put a mark 4 on it and am very happy with it but I bought a semi custom .300wm from Quarter Minute magnum rifles out of Lewiston Idaho, Loaded with 210 Bergers I have killed out to twelve hundred + yards and a lot of steel has been hit, I have put 5 shots in 5" several times at Deep Creek 1k range with it but when I tried to compete with it, it took 10-12"for 10 shots I quickly learned it was just a very accurate hunting rifle but not near good enough for competition and the scope was not near good or rather powerful enough for those needs, I ended up with a couple of 12-42 br night force scopes for that job so I think out of all the post written maybe the second to the las post would be the most accurate post of all written by Buano, there are many good scopes out there and many sorry scopes out there , there are many best scopes for the job intended for that person! For me at the time of this post for the rifle and original purpose of the scope there is no doubt in my mind the S&B 5-25 PF-4 MOA scope was the best scope on the market PERIOD! I hope you all have enjoyed this thread as much as I have and I learned a ton, thank you all that posted for your thoughts, ideas and suggestions.

Night Force, period
What Is A Veteran?
A 'Veteran' -- whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve -- is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America,' for an amount of 'up to, and including his life.' That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country today who no longer understand that fact.

Nightforce without any doubt. By far the most repeatable scope and by far the most durable. Glass is excellent and the service cannot be beat. I would still say Nightforce if it was the most expensive scope on the market (which it is not!) Buy a Nightforce and there is no need to look back. You will be happy with your purchase for life.
