Yesterday a member here suggested I look at MARCH scopes for my new 6.5 CM Browning X-Bolt Pro. It was very eye-opening. (no pun intended) I've head of the excellence of MARCH glass for F Class competition scopes but had no idea they made other scopes. Their 3 - 24 x 42 scopes in FFP and mil or MOA are very nice. But the prices are in the Schmidt & "Bendover" range as well. Don't like FFP? They have 2nd focal plane scopes in 2.5 - 25 x 42 as well. MARCH 3 - 24 x 42 FFP Scope Length-> 12.28 inches Weight-> 22.5 oz. or 21.5 oz. depending if illuminated or not Glass-> ED glass (better be for their prices!) As you can see it's short and light with a great magnification range. Perfect for your custom sheep rifle. So yeah, I'm starting to save my shekels for this scope. Worth the wait. Meanwhile I'll use the scope I had on my former 6.5 CM Ruger American Predator. It's a SWFA 3- 15 x 42, FFP, mil/mil, side focus (but no locking turrets). Very good glass for the price but of course the MARCH glass is world class. Eric B.
