    I have owned Leupold and Nikons for years ,but I bought my first Burris a few months back.I held several types of scopes up and the Burris had the best optics of the bunch.So far it has held up to a couple of hunts I went on.The price was not bad either.

    Burris is another good one. I like the fullfield2 series. and the Ballistic-plex reticle is great for hitting your mark out to 500 yds without having to adjust the turrets.

    I went out and bought the Sightron Sii Big Sky 6-24x 42mm and installed it on my .223. Then took the Redfield Revolution 4-12 and installed it on my 10/22.

    The optics in the Sightron puts the optics in the Redfield to shame. Seems like it is going to be a very good scope.

    The Sightron has the Dot reticle, should work excellent for target practice and varmints.

    yessuh. In my line of tinkerin I have had the chance to work with most of the proclaimed 'best' optics. I dont mind voicing my honest opinion.

    And its not that the Zeiss os a bad scope. Heck I can shoot the same .5 MOA groups with it. The problem is this.. If youre a big time scope mfgr and you offer a thousand dollar piece of glass for rifle shooters, better make damn sure another reputable scope mfgr doesnt have a superior unit for 1/3 the price.
