The EB is a far better scope Steve,

Sparky will correct me if I am wrong, but the EB is the most successful scope in the UKAHFT,

Of those two, the EB Sniper is by far the better scope. I personally would go for an Elite 3200 10x40 bushnell. Fantastic HFT scope and cheaper than an EB and far superior than the MTC. IMHO.

I get on fine with my MTC Mamba, same glass as the Viper... but it's all down to personal preference I suppose.

Every scope will have px error, if you're consistantly finding it a problem with all the different scopes you've then it's down to gun setup and how you're using it. You'll find error with either of the above just as easily as with anything else.

Both scopes have done well, but the EB has a very strong following.

Yes the are set for longer range than we use at HFT. So what? You can easily use your hand and re-adjust the paralax. It's as easy as taking a pee. As for paralax error, no more than any other scope of the hundreds I have tried including a few EB's and viper's. The Optics are for me better than the two mentioned.

I have both the 3200 and EB scopes and they are both very good scopes. If money or weight was an issue I'd happily pick a 3200 however if they aren't a problem then it would be the EB everytime. I find the larger eyepiece and equally larger sight picture useful and more comfortable for extended use...think of it as watching a bigscreen tv instead of a 14inch portable The easily variable parallax is a bonus also, I tend to parallax to my zero range to make sure I'm getting the best possible zero before returning to the previous setting for a comp...I have 3 EBs and not one of them shifts when altering the settings Optically wise id say they, to my eyes at least, are very similar. Another added bonus is the sunshade option on the EB, I've found the 3200 picks up a lot of glare when even the unshaded, but heavily recessed front lense, of the EB copes well...add the additional sunshade and your covered for any eventuallity.
Just my take on the 2 scopes
