Well, you know how much I love my Swarvoski CL and SLC binos.

Well, put this on my bucket list to replace my Leupold rifle scope

Flint - You will love them....I am a big Swarovski fan as well...and I have been watching the DS line, wow, talk about a quality product....I own three Swarovski scopes, all old A3 American series and a pair of their EL 10-32mm Binoculars and a 20-60X x 80mm Spotting scope...

Yes - the put out super quality stuff in anything they do. I took my Swarovski 10x32mm Binos to South Africa on both safari's and take the Swarovski Spotter to the range ever  month....

Have you seen to price of the 40mm scope tube rings and bases....another $500....and the 5-25X isn't cheap at $4500....wonder what kind of rifle you would put it on?

Flint - I own a Sauer 200, that is the model before the 202....it is like the Blaser R84 and the Blaser R93....I love the Sauer and have two barrels for it, a 30-06 and the 25-06....matter of fact the Sauer 200 in the 30-06 went to South Africa on my very first Safari....it shot about 3/4" groups at 200 yards all day long using the 180 Gn Barnes TSX bullets....

Flint - Have been looking at the combo that you have now and that is about $7.5K to $10K that you have in your setup...wow, that is quiet a sum you have in it.....and it shoots wonderful I bet....what ammo are you shooting in it? The Caliber? and the twist rate in the barrel? Please post some targets if you don't mind....

Hope the Leupold Scope is your spare scope?
