I've been planning changing my scope on my .270 from a 8x56 S&B and was thinking about getting a leupold. I have one on my hmr and get on great with it. I'm after a variable scope,(probably 6x up) as I like to be able to crank the scope up for zeroing or slightly longer shots.
why do most folk on here jump straight to s&b,(like I did) swaro, zeiss? Is the glass that much better? Or is it the thicker reticules? Any reason to avoid the leupolds?
