I waited a half a year for 111's and they finally said they were not going to make them because they didn't work out. Even though they show them on their website, I called them and they said they were not planning on making the 111's and were just going to stick with the 115's. Maybe they had problems with the polymer tip?
(this was about a year and a half ago so I checked today on their website and they still had them there and I called and they told me the same thing.....)
As far as the 6x47 vs. the 6br. I have had both and prefer the 6x47 for my style of shooting. 1,000yd. "F" class in windy conditions and long range varmint shooting. This may be different if I were shooting bench-rest in low wind conditions, but I don't see that happening in the near future,.......low winds in ND?? and I think carrying a bench around would just wear me out...
