    I run a Burris Black Diamond 8-32x50 on my Cooper .223 and my AR-15 - and for the money I can't seem to find anything better, they have gone up since I bought mine, so maybe people are catching on?

    My next scope will be the Nightforce 12-42 but only because I need more power... gun)

    So I'm looking for an argument on the Burris... please enlighten me :)

    I'm about the power/money combo, and what would one of those scopes cost?

    You might have to call Welcome to Kelbly's to make sure but IIRC it retails for ~$2900 (???).

    Another consideration is the Sightron SIII 10-50x60 for around $800+.

    Good luck!

    Are Sightron's pretty nice scopes, that sounds like a great deal!
