I like sig, but have had vortex and luppy.

Really comes to user preferences. I don’t care about ballistics calculators but do care about auto dim and brighting


Donate to TX Youth hunting program.... better to donate then to waste it in taxes

Another vote for Leica, but whatever you choose I like the yardage in red vs black. When it's dawn or dust, black is hard to read. However, red will blind you if it doesn't dim.

Did that just recently with a sig kilo, leica 1600 and a new set of Swarovski ranging binos. All were within 1yrd of each other.

I recently bought an off brand cheapo to replace my expensive one that I can’t find. I really don’t need to be that precise. Not a competition shooter or bow hunter.

I don’t care whether a target is 250 or 300 yards. Anything further than that, I probably shouldn’t take the shot. My days of hunting the mountains and long distances are in the past.

I have a Leupold and a Sig, they both measure well. IMO I'm going RF binos next time-why carry two products if you don't have to.
