What about the dies? Are they anything special or hard to get?
The other thing....
I am considering buying a US Optics scope. I have always used Nightforce and very happy with it. But i see alot of articles saying USO is even better. But why are they? I heard they were so tough that you can drive a nail into wood!! But I own 3 hammers and have never broken a Nightforce, so I need a reason other then this. I dont mind spending the money but I would like to know what I am paying more for. On the USO web it looks like you can customise the scope, but the one I am looking at is not that special, just a different turret and riticle. One would have to presume that the glass and internals are far better then that of the Nightforce. What do you guys think???
I was interested in getting a USO scope sent down under.
A mate of mine had a USO scope fail under warranty in the US.
I heard him say "that getting his issues acknowledged was really difficult and he would not get another one"
It put me off.
Shane Clancy has those Premier Heritage scopes available.
I was thinking about that type of scope.
