    Hey Sully...

    I'll trade you a used Rockchucker (that you can use for an extra wheel chock) for your motorhome for a Schmidt and Bender. Always wanted one and almost bought one last year but bought a Rolex instead.:D

    Thanks guys , I appreciate the comments ..... I looked at a lot of the old Posts since I have time on my hands recouperating from failed Surgery . Every year there are improvements in Scopes . I have the older Nightforces , Leupolds , etc. The newer Nightforce Competition is supposed to be considerably better , and I don't know anyone who owns one or has a March , a S&B , or a Premier . Also I think most on this Site are interested in Big Game , that's why I was Varmint specific . Old news is old News . Sorry to have taxed your reading abilities ( cut the List down to whatever you have experience with ) .....was hoping for some updated info. ......OK , so how about Rating the newer Models of the top Six ?

    The used rockchucker wheel chock or the S&B or the coach? Don't want a coach. Bad enough driving an 18 wheeler. Everything else in negotiable...:D

    Pick as scope and do a You Tube search. Like say the S+B or the USO. . Tiboasarus Rex gives a fairly exaugstive review on several Alpha scopes
