Re: What rifle scope would you use?
DS is right about the fact that the S&B don't dominate the 50 cal comps, or many other for that matter, the PMII's have been made as sniper scopes, that doesn't nesseceraly mean they are 100% employable as a target rifle scope. He is right that the reason for this has been, not high enough magnification and not thin enough reticles, and not enough reticle choice, all that is changing, slowly but its changing. in the standard mildot in the PMII's, the cross in the middle covers 7.5mm @100m. the klein (gen 2 mildot but thinner, which is the ret i had in the 4-16x50 when i visited Alg, remember looking through it Alg?) covers 3.2mm @100m.
anyway, ive seen a bunch of broken NXS's the only problem i heared of in a PMII has been that it didn't elevate to the amount that the dial said, i suspected that it was a mils turret on a moa scope or vis-versa.
Ive seen a bunch of swarovskis go tits up when put on moderated rifles.
pay your money and take your choice.
my money, and that or the US, Canadian, British and a fair few others is on the S&B.
