i also want to know if i should get a nikon prostaff or a leopold rifleman?? i want to replace the stock bushnell sharpshooter i have on my rem. 770
i want a 50mm and i like the price of the nikons! only 309$ canadian for a 3x9x50mm
I've had 4 over the years. I currently have 2 that I purchased more than 25 years ago at a sale. One is a 4X M8 that is on it's 3rd rifle, a 700 BDL in 308 win. The other a 2X-7X VX1 that is on it's 4th rifle, a Browning A bolt in 300 wsm. I've never had a problem with either.
Both have exceptional clarity. I was wondering what they would be the equivelent to, in the current grades. As mentioned, both are in excess of 25 years.

Picked up a leupold vx III 3.5x10x40 that is very clear its got the limited edtion gun metal paint that matches the new browning its pretty nice anyways just wanted to say thanks and that you guys were right about the leupolds they are way nicer than the nikons
