    I am in the market for a S&B precision hunter probably in the 3-12x56 and before I purchase one sight unseen I was wondering if anyone have one and what people think about them. Thanks

    Are you asking about S&B overall, just this optic, or both?

    The optic is top of the line so is any other optic S&B turns out.

    Not asking about S&B in general, specifically wondering about the precision hunter model. I have Klassic's and a PMII and looking for a high quality optic for my long range deer/elk rifle with target turrets and don't want the mass of a PMII or a NF and I perfeer S&B

    Not sure how strong your decision is on the S&B...but there is a potential contender for a hunting scope...it's the Premier Heritage 3-15x by 50mm Hunter:

    Premier Reticles | New Products for 2011

    There's been some positive buzz about this scope as well as their Light Tactical version. They source the glass from S&B...not sure about the internals...although my 5-25x's Tactical model are extremely robust and have amazing turrets...like the PM II's.

    Just thought I'd throw that out there...not to derail your question....just thought there might be a cost savings for a very similar product..IMHO.

    The S&B Precision Hunters are superior. If you use Mil/Mil then there is not much better scope on the market adjustment and especially clarity wise. You will pick up at lease 15 mins morning and night of shooting time with this scope. I use M4's and Night force each has there positive such as the M4 weight saving but S&B glass is superior and the scopes are the strongest on the market. When you spend 10k + on a hunt the extra shooting time is VERY valuable. You wont be sorry, I sold one and regret to this day.
