    Schmidt and Bender make their Police marksman II scopes in 5-25 power with 34mm maintubes. It has 100 MOA adjustment and all the bells and whistles I like. It's also $3000. Is there another high magnification scope with this kind of elevation range and optics quality? None of the other high dollar scopes I've seen in this magnification range come close.

    I think that the only other company that match the S&B is maybe U.S. Optics.
    Your gonna be hard pressed to find anybody whos glass will match S&B's from what I've looked through its the best out their. never got to do a head to head with a U.S.optics butI can't see it getting anybetter than the Germans.

    I considered the nightforce. It's a fine scope. If the 32 power had 100 MOA it would be mine by now. Same with US optics.

    My tactical rigs wear 16x Leupolds with 140 MOA adjustment and I find myself using all of it when I do my thing in South Dakota. Last year I was missing because I didn't have enough scope to see the darn Pdogs out at 1500-1600y. Another problem was the constant turning of the elevation adjustment, the nightforce has the same setup. Takes like 5 turns to get it all the way thru the elevation range. Easy to get lost.

    Maybe I'm just too picky...
