Hello. I'm interested in learning your experiences and opinions about Schmidt scopes. Specifically, I am considering their 3-12x42 standard variable with a custom installed BDC. Want to put this scope on a 300 Dakota... will probbaly not shoot past 400, and only then when conditions don't exceed my limited talents. After scanning a year's worth of posts in the optics section of this forum, it seems there is some question about whether a S&B rig will hold up to larger recoil, and also whether it will present value in proportion to the price. Also, I am interested in finding whether the FFP design obscures game at distance in the field. It seems as though it won't, but I've only used SFP scopes, specifically the Kahles American line, Leupold Mk4, and Leupold LR VX3s in 4.5-14 and 6.5-20, so any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
