    Please let me know how you like the Leopold, I'm debating between that one and the Vortex PST Gen II.

    I looked at both the vortex pst gen II but I have to say the leupold had better glass compared to the vortex but not bashing the vortex glass at all, still love vortex. and the big factor was that the leupold has a lot more elevation than the pst. If I remember the PST gen II FFP only had 65 moa of elevation where the leupold has 110 moa. Now mine is in .1 mil adjustments but still the same amount of elevation just measured in Mil instead of moa. I was going to go to the range today but things came up. Should be going tomorrow and will give you a range report on how it feels and performs. Once my Vortex is fixed and I get it back its going on the 308 and I will be keeping the leupold on the 6.5 creedmoor

    Forgot to update you guys on the replacement scope. The Leupold sucked. Would not hold zero and after talking to a lot of guys lately people have been having issues with them. So I dropped a ton of money and picked up a Schmidt and Bender PM II in Mil 25x56 with 34 mm tube. Scope is so damn awesome. Got it in FFP and Illuminated reticle with the fine reticle. has 27 mil of elevation adjustment.

    Go big or go home I guess.


    I might consider getting rid of the cat though.

    Not a fan of the Vortex stuff. I know its supposed to be good. But when a same-price mid-range Nikon has better glass, its not the way to go. I compared several scopes to the different Vortex scopes, and they were never the best option glass-wise.

    I've heard only good things about Leupold, but most of my stuff has Nikon or Zeiss. THe Monarch scopes have good glass, super clear.
