Re: What scope to buy for 257 weatherby mag?
Right now I tend to go Nikon or Burris. I have several Leupold's and they have been terrific scopes and I never really regretted buying one but I have bought my last unless I find that they made a change. My issue with Leupold is that as I have gotten older and my eyes weaker, I find that I have to adjust focus on my scopes. Well - I sure was surprised one day to find that my Leupolds will only focus and sharpen the reticle but not actually focus the scope to your eyes. My Nikons will focus to my eyes and heck - I even had a $50 Simmons that would focus to my eyesight so that alone turned my off from Leupold. May not be an issue to some but has been a deal breaker to me. That being said in reasonably priced optics (if there is such a thing) you can't go wrong with Nikon, Burris, Leupold as the top 3 in my mind.
