As you know I've been looking for a better scope for months, believe me I gave it every chance to seduce me.

The trick is to get to know what to look for when you've got an incorrect head position. Some scopes make this easy, on others it's a bit more difficult.
I'm with Chris on this one mate, I've noticed with Leup's especially they really take some time to get used to, I didn't get to grips with my first one for about 8 months. Have you had a shoot with a Bushnell 6500 round a course yet?
