Posts are much easier to read with capitalization, punctuation, and correct spelling.

Yes, Premiers are very well respected. You've listed 4 of the top 5 or 6 scope makers out there. There's not a bad choice in your list. They each have their pros and cons, so you just need to figure out how much you want to spend and which features are the most important.

Just copy and paste the URL into your post and the board will automatically make them into hyperlinks for you. Or you can use this icon:

Alot of folks here have the NF 5.5-22x and seem to like them. Personally I prefer the NF 12-42x as the eyes aren't what they used to be and I shoot alot of paper. Mirage can be an issue.

As far as your scope choice goes, don't go any heavier than a Nightforce scope as you will probably be carrying these rifles. Might want to concider the Leupold also to save a pound of weight.
As far as the Schmidt & Bender and the Premier, both are excellent scopes, built like a tank, but are going to add another pound of weight over the Nightforce, and will cost you another $1000.00
Basically weight wise:
Leupold w rings #1 1/2- 2
Nightforce w rings #2 1/2
Premier w rings #3-3 1/2
Personally, I have had Premier Heritage, Huskemaw, and Nightforce. I still have the Nightforce .
