The top end scopes is very expensive and i want to make the right choice.I have a S&B12-50X56 and a Zeiss 6-24x56.Curently i am busy with a new rifle project and i need a scope. My opinion on theS&B scope is as follows:brilliant lenses havent seen anyting better,turrets works great,scope is heavy,the magnification is sort of a problem because it starts at 12x, biggest downside is the eye relieve, it is a problem on heavy recoil rifles.The zeiss lenses is not so good as the S&B,turrets work great,scope also heavy,exellent hunting scope but not so good target scope- the reticle is rapid-z7. What is important to me is 1.repeatability of turrets 2.lense quality 3.reticle 4.field of view So far it looks like March 5-50x56 would fit all the criteria, but i havent looked through it, havent even seen it. the scope will be used for target shooting as well as hunting. Can anyone please advise me or give a better suggestion. thanks TMOS.
