Among better quality "tactical" scopes, March had the worst tracking.

Buy a Hensoldt. I've looked through them and they are absolutely amazing. smile

yes I like the weight, most of these scopes weigh more than the rifle

Yep it's pretty dumb how heavy some are. Really throws off the balance of some guns

Just trying to help him out.

He is a man of simple tastes, only the finest. up

I'm still getting by just fine with NXS's, but if I hit the Lotto, a Hensoldt is on the list to buy.

Buzz,

what will this scope be used for - hunting, target shooting?

hunting but I do like overkill up

I've narrowed it down to another Swaro Z6, Leupold HD-6

Then I saw the March, 21-23 ounces

I know I would be good with "just" a scope

Stay away from Leupold.

The Nightforce NXS Compact 2.5-10x42 is working nicely for me on my lighter hunting rifles.

I had a NF 2.5-10 great scope, I have a swaro 3-10 on the rifle now, great scope but I want to do some astronomy while in my dear stand, MORE POWER for nature research.

What have is perfect for the rifle a Barrett Fieldcraft, 6.5 Creed, I just love magnification when I need it or want it.

OR, I may go to the Safari Club Convention and buy a Proof Research Summit

I'm just fickle and goofy bang

I do believe there was some discrepancies in the math there. The blog quoted overlooked that the particular model used was calibrated in NATO mils instead of true mils, which was what the test was based on. If you adjusted for the scale used, the March scope performed as well as other top scopes. The March scope was also a bit of an outlier for the comparison; most of the scopes that were being compared had 50mm or 56mm objectives.

I have never owned one, but they have an excellent reputation. If you're hung up on glass, they are supposed to have great quality glass. And if you ever start twisting turrets, it would be a better choice than a Leupold or Swaro/Zeiss in similar price range. Great choice if you ask me.

We tested a 3-25, I wasn't that impressed with the glass and the parallax setting was extremely finicky, constantly having to tweak it.. With their benchrest background and shooting at static, known distances I can see it working for that environment.

I have a FFP MIL/MIL 5-40X56. It's an outstanding scope. I'm not sure where I heard about them first but Tony helped me with the decision. He let me look through his when I took everything to him to build my 6.5Creedmoor. For the money it was the best at the time.
