Re: Factory guns: Savage 112 VLP or Rem 700P?

way to go with savage I have 2 a 308 and 300wsm and with my wsm I won a 1000yd shoot with it. Now with the scope that your are deciding on I like Leupold thats what i have on all of my cometition guns. when I bought my 300wsm it had the same burris scope and it sucks <u>sucks</u> I have not look through a sighton but I have not heard anything good or bad about them I would suggest that you look very hard at Zeiss conquest 6.5-20*50 for $700

Nice choice with the Savage. Sightron also makes a 6x24x50mm with a 30 mm tube, in the S3 series. Price is in the same ball park as the Burris BD, both are good scopes for the money. The Burris appears a little clearer and brighter to me.

Ya right I had one one a savage 300wsm and it was so blury that I could bearly make out what I was shooting at.
So I think you should look hard at Zeiss conquest for around $700

All the rest of my scopes are Leupolds. Power for power it is brighter clearer sharper than any of them. I don't know about the Zeiss. Mine is so good it stays on 32 power most of the time. Was yours a Black Diamond or was it a Signature series? On 32 power they are not as sharp. If yours was blury, something was wrong. Did you focus it properly or have it evaluated by Burris? I'm looking to buy a few more BD 8-32's but surely wouldn't pass up a 6-24 if the price was right. The Sightron's I have looked through were unusable on their top powers. My Black Diamond is perfect on 32 just like my Leupolds are all fine on their top power.
