I’m looking for yalls real world opinions on this scope. Looking pulling the trigger on the 3-15x56 and was wondering if there may be something else in this range that I should really look at.

There are a couple of guys on here that have them and think they're fantastic scopes. 257 Weatherby has one and likes it. I think my next scope buy will be either a VX 5 or VX 6. I think the VX 6 2x12 will be perfect atop my 338 win mag.

The 2-10x42 is tempting.


Sig Sauer, to hell and back reliable.

Whatever suits you just tickles me plum to death.

Can I refill your eggnog for you? Get you something to eat? Drive you out to the middle of nowhere and leave you for dead?

Where are you finding the 56 for $900 at. I believe this will be going on a Christensen Mesa 7mm if all works out.

$870 to be exact. Use SWFA price match plus 10%. Gun pro deals has it for $900 free shipping. Then go to swfa tell them they will do 10% off the match price comes to $870

Well I believe you just twisted my arm enough to go ahead and order one up. Guess I’ll know what I’ll be doing in the morning. So what height rings are you using on the 56. I like a scope as low as I can get them

Depends on taper of barrel but I use Talley highs on my 56’s. No need for super high

The price you gave must be for the 44mm one on gun pro unless I didn’t see the 56 for that cheap.

I bought the 3-15x44 right after hunting season this year. Did the SWFA price match, but by the time I ordered it, they had put it on sale. I figured the price match discount code wouldn't give me as much off, but it gave me the original discount off the sale price. I ended up with $680 something in it. I have to thank cuz-pat for that deal! He told me where to look for the best price at the time ... thumbup

SWFA is a great outfit.
I feel kinda bad using 110% every time I order from them but I mean if they offer it, well alrighty then.

257 - You have seen them both. Which one do you like better for low light performance, this one, or the Swaro you bought last December?

The older 3-12-56 habicht nova. I had a z6i and yes that would beat the Vx5 a tad. But I think the vx5hd is leupolds best offering yet. And I have regular vx6’s Which are might good. But the 5 walks off and leaves it behind
