I have two Meopro's. I may have paid over 500 combined, but it isn't by much.

Obviously, alpha glass to alpha glass, bigger objectives will tend to be brighter if other variables are constant.

My point was....I often see guys going to big objectives and lower end glass, when they'd get an actual better end result if they went to better glass even with a smaller objective.

I don't doubt some Leupolds are fine.

I've talked with enough people I trust that have experienced what I have with my Leupold that I'm done with Leupold. There are plenty of other options that are competitively priced and do everything Leupy does without the two-step shuffle at the range.

For a dedicated deer (and bear) rifle, I like something with 2x on the bottom end.

Three of my rifles wear Weaver V10 scopes. Great scope when it works. Weaver products have let me down enough times that I'll never buy another...……...and it's no wonder they folded.

I am a big fan of upper end Nikon and a HUGE fan of Burris.

Where are you buying your Meopro...cheapest I can find them for online is about $500 ?

I agree, better quality glass pays bigger dividends than larger objectives. I guess what I was getting at is the difference between a scope most guys consider an alpha glass and the "mega" alpha glass in a $2,500+ scope. You just don't think there could be much difference until you look at a target in twilight conditions, then realize there is a huge difference.

One I got off another forum's classifieds.

One I got from the Bargain Cave while Cabela's still had such a thing. CameraLandNY often has open box options, too.

The deals are there, if you can shop when you don't need one.

When you need one, you probably do have to pay retail.

I like Burris.

Weaver k-4 was a great scope back in the day.

I have found that some rifles can change zero over time because of changes in the stock. by the way send me all your junk leupold scopes, I,ll even pay the shipping.

I like the Rain Guard coating on the upper end Bushnell scopes, I have these on 4 of my rifles and have shot quite a few deer the my buddy’s with the HIGH DOLLAR Leupolds couldn’t see in bad weather.

Used Leupolds easily bring half (usually a bit more) of what a new one costs, and sell quickly. I really don't know if that can be said of any other scopes. You may get half of new retail if lucky, but may be waiting a while for a buyer to come along.
