I have had mine for about 15 years . i sold it and bought it back . yes it takes a while to get used to em . but when you do it is worth it . i think as far as i know it is the lightest quality side wheel scope . don't leave it in the sun . if out in the open i put my hat over it when not shooting . i use 35 mag on it for everything . ranging , kneelers , standers , sitters . there are some duff ones out there , so take care . the biggest problem would be if it needed to go back to leup . they would take out the 2 X . which of course doubles it . no good without it . mind you not much does go wrong . yes the sightron is a better range finder . but not by much and it weighs all up over two pounds . would you want a bag of sugar on top of your rifle ??? HOLLY
PS the only other scope i would consider is a 60 mag march . anybody got one for sale .
PSS yes you nikko will do
at least as good a job of range finding as the leup but it won't give as much pleasure to look through .
