What is better,Pentex 8x32 light seeker 30MM or Leapold 8.5 x 25 30MM.I have a B&L Elite 4200 6x24.At 500 yds squirrles look like dots.Now if its a cool day[no mirage] will Pentexes 32 power help me out? I've heard that one scope of 12 power is not the same as another scopes 12 power,is this true? Is there an "Industry standard"?
Night Force man thats $1,400 bucks,forget it!!!!

I'd go with a IOR for that amount of cash.
A used NF BR model may run around $800, but the cheapest I have ever seen online is about a grand, new...sakofan..But, Ive been wrong before.

Since i am always interested in a bargain on NF scopes, I went to the above website. What impressed me more than the NF, was the NIB Leupold 6.5-20 Vari-X III M1 Tactical for $792. I don't think you will miss the extra 5X on a quality scope like this. My problem with 32X is additional mirage and smaller exit pupil. My NF 8-32 is very seldom above 22X since this is where the NP1-RR reticle works. Good luck ... Mike

now i am of the opinion that one should buy a decent scope, if you spend an extra $500 on a scope today you won't notice the cach missing out of your wallet in 8 months time but you will notice that you bought a chap scope every time you look through the thing. Having said that, take a look at the Zeiss Conquest line of scopes, they have a lot of features, great glass and are reasonably priced, the only disadvantage bieng the 1inch scope tube.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
