Zeiss, March or Premiere

Ok fellow members, I have a dilemma, I am at the pointy end of purchasing my new scope for my 338 EDGE.

These are the scopes I want nothing else, so experience using any of these models would be helpful in making my decision, thank you in advance.

Also reticle choices if you want I will mainly be dialling.

Ranges out to 1000 meters

Zeiss Victory FL Diavari 6-24x56 T*FL
March Tactical 2.5-25x42
Premier 5-25x56

bbw,

Thanks for that I think I may save some weight and dollars and settle with the March, he ranked it with the S&B and Hensolt so thats plenty good enough here.

Am waiting on my price for the Zeiss, so it better be a good one......

If there's anything negative (at least for me) with the March scopes is that it has no lifetime warranty, IIRC 5 years only (unless it has recently changed) and I'm not sure of it's transferability. If you do have a problem who can fix it? Kelbly (http://www.kelbly.com/), or a trip back to Japan? ;)

For that kind of money I'd expect a lifetime warranty, and repair service within the CONUS.
Just my 2-pence for your thoughts.

ADDED: (C&P from http://www.opticstalk.com/march-x-sc...309_page1.html)

March scopes are quite possibly the best scope at any price. They are way over engineered, and are known for their top-quality Japanese glass and their perfect tracking.

The 5-year warranty is not a real issue, because Deon (http://www.deon.co.jp/march/) will fix or replace the scope as long as they exist as an ongoing concern. The only reason that the warranty is capped at 5-years is due to Japanese law, which takes into account the size of a company when capping their warranty terms. Deon is not a huge company, so they are capped at an unreasonable 5-years for their written warranty. A large company like Nikon would be allowed to publish a lifetime warranty. Deon will stand behind their product, no matter what Japanese law forces them to put on paper.

I have settled on the March Tactical 2.5-25x42..........best tracking out there, and the Aus distributer will warrant them for as long as you own it, he said he wants it back if it craps itself new scope no questions.

Check out the aussie thread "Just order my 338 EDGE" for updates and pics when it is all finished

I'll hijack a little here if I may.

We hear about your firearm laws here. My question is are you allowed to keep your arms in your home or have to keep them locked up at a club and do they have to be registered?

Thanks.
