    has anyone out there had any experience with the leatherwood m-600 art tactical rifle scope? and can anyone tell me how it stackes up to the super sniper. i just got a bushmaster varminter from my wife for christmas and i went ahead and put a leatherwood scope on it and i would just like to know how good of a scope for real world applications it is or if i should replace it with maybe the super sniper.

    Are you OK kid? If you feel pissed you really should tell someone such as a friend or a family member. Nobody is ignoring you, the scope is rare and possibly noone here has one. Be patient, and try to be poilte.

    Cheers and a Happy New Year

    Son, what part of "you reap what you sow" don't you understand? I happen to be a daily reader and missed your demand. Off your meds are we?
    I happen to own an old model scope ART and for the "minute of man" or minute of meat uses it is most adequate if you learn to use it. It is old but workable and so is my 200# anvil. It is not a 1,000 yard benchrest scope but for its design uses I find it fast, adequate and reliable. If you saw "BlackHawk down, you saw the reason the M-14 users went to a dot scope: faster acquisition but for sniping ops up to 600 yards is it good and for deer sized targets the same. Frame your game and squeeze-- it is yours.

    Would this happen to be an "original" from RVN era? If so do you have the hard green case for it? I am not interested in buying it, I am just curuios from a nostalgia standpoint. I believe the original scopes were actually made by Bausch and Lomb but those details are very fuzzy in my mind.

    I had the ML version on my Omega for 3-4 years, it worked well and was a no-think to get the range dialed in once it was calibrated. However, the overall quality was crap and it went out on me this year. I'd recommend something else...even the Barska I replaced it with is a step up.

    AS for your post, you gave less than 24 hours, during the HOLIDAY SEASON, to get a response before your childish tantrum. Grow the hell up, leave, or both.

    I am from the ARVN era but the ART is early 70's. The only tricky part was/ is matching your ballistics to the cam but a good reloader can do that easily. To answer, negative on the case. Overbore

    not an rvn era

    hey bufflobob, no my leatherwood is not a rvn era it is the model m-600 tactical. i think probably a very civilianized version of the military sniper model. i got it because bushmaster, the co. that makes the rifle i have, sells it so i thought it would be the best choice for the gun but now im wondering if i made a poor choice. i havnt read anything good about the leatherwood scopes. i am planning on makeing my rifle a good long range coyote gun as well as use for prairie dogs and would like to figure out what tactical scope would be best choice for this work
