Wow... I am surprised no one has mentioned Swift. I love my Swift scopes and been using them for years. They have the BEST warrenty out there... Unlike Leupold, you do not have to send one back. You can exchange them over the counter at any authorized Swift dealer worldwide. I have not ever had to do that yet and I now own 14 swifts.

I tell people to search ebay for a used Leupold. Yes they are expensive, but they are very much worth it. The thing with a Leupold is they all have a lifetime warranty. You buy one scope to last you the rest of your life. The resale is also good compared to almost any other brand.

If you sight in a Leupold it will stay that way until you switch to a different ammo. It's comical watching guys with bargain scope sight in every year. When eactly do these scopes lose there zero? I sight in every year but have never found my zero to be off with a Leupold scope. Again, they will cost more but you get what you pay for. You should be able to find one for around $200.00-$250.00 new. Look for a VXII, you don't need to buy the VX-III. Natchez shooting supply usually has some prett good deals. I like ebay because if there is a problem you just send to Leupold and they will fix it.

Other quality scopes are the Zeiss, Swavoski, the Bushnell elite series, and some of the Burris scopes.

I am a Law Enforcement sniper and have to rely on quality optics. Just about any large department PD sniper team, FBI, or military snipers use the Leupold scopes.

Just remember, "you get what you pay for" There are no big "rip off" manufacturers when it comes to higher end optic.

Have had a Leupold VariXII on my '06 since 1982.........never a problem. Only changes are when I change bullets!
My dad's has been on his .270 since the mid 70's........same results.

I just put a Nikon Buckmaster on my new Weatherby Vangaurd synthetic,30-06. I love it. Optics are great and the scope was $225.00 with the rings. Am more than pleased hunting in the Piney woods in east Tx.

on my Remington M700 BDL Mountain rifle chambered for .308 win, I have a simmons 44mag 3-10x44mm on it, this setup has killed 9 deer ranging from 20 yards to over 300 yards. The scope has never given me any problems. the funny thing is when i bought that scope I was looking at it and a leupold vx-1 2-7x32mm both scopes were roughly the same price, I picked the simmons over the leupold because the simmons had a much crisper picture. though the leupold had a better name I think that particular simmons scope is actually better then that particular leupold.
