THanks for the warm welcome, guys. I found a GREAT deal here today (so glad I signed up) for a Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14x44 scope with Z-plex reticle and side focus. I think I still may want to get eventually either the XOTIC or a really nice (Zeiss, Sightron, Burris Black Diamond) 6-24x scope, but that will have to wait.
Now, I need to find myself a nice .308 Tikka, and maybe a different sort of varmint gun (.223, .25-06, ???)
If anyone can steer me to someone who has a Varmint model Tikka for sale, I'd be much obliged!

Grey -- while you are at it, check out www.snipershide.com
on the forums for LOTS of info on the XOTIC
once you get MROE POWER, you keep wanting MORE -- luckily im at about as far as we can take it in a scope at 42-50x [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
it is addictive when you can see you holes in white paper to 1000yds in good conditions [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
Seems the XOTIC glass is SUPERB, so say several people i trust, but havent seen it myself.
