    Most definitely!!!!!!

    After this year's hunt its a must.

    Timing will be the biggest consideration.

    Choice is narrowed down to:

    Leupold 6.5-20X50 LRT but am down on the fine cross hair.
    Zeiss Conquest 6.5-20X50 w/target knobs and plex, mil dot or #4 reticle..
    Weaver Tactical 4.5-14X44 one of which I already have and would get another if I could find one. Was shooting at an 8.5x11 piece of paper with BB's patented blue + on it at 400 yds when w/the naked eye I couldn't even see the berm behind it. Shot OK too! Also its kind of neat to be able to move the group an eights MOA at a time.

    Yes 5

    I just received an as new Leupold VX III 3.5-10X40 Boon and Crocket for my deer rifle a Rem Model7 7mm SAUM.
    Also have in transit an IOR 6X CQB illuminated for a 7mm TCU Short.

    Both purchased at an awsome price on the Hide.

    I also will need to buy the following
    Swaro Laser Guide
    Nightforce NXS 8-32X56
    for my 338WBX
    And a Nightforce NF 12-42X56 for my new F Class switch barrel Lawton 7500 in 7mm and 6mm.

    Just have to sell some other rifles to fund the last 3.

    Cheers Bill

    I am outfitting a new rig entirely. Just got a Weatherby in .257 Wby Mag and it needs a scope, and I haven't decided what I want to put on it yet.

    Just bought 2 NF NXS from Lerch and BJ, great guys to deal with. I'm looking for a spotting scope now. Got a big gift certificate to Cabelas 1K and been looking at the leupolds and nikons, wish they had a better selection there. Can't afford the Swaro or Zeiss.
