Re: Leupold warranty puts others to shame!
Light gathering is only one facet of a good scope. There are many other things that have to be there to turn an average scope into a great scope. And to my eye, the Leupolds still look brighter than S&B's and I also agree with you that S&B's reticles are not as good. All in all, the scopes brightness is in the eye of the beholder and my eyes are different than yours. But one solid fact remains, there are more Leupolds riding atop 1000 yard br guns than all your euro scopes combined and that is not because they stink and not because they break. It is just the opposite.
Aside from arguing scopes, the main point of the post was to show how good their warranty is and how awesome their customer service is. And they are just as I said, "hard to beat".
If it's not far, it's boring.
