Scopes - US Optics:
Also, looking for experience pro / con on the US Optics line of scopes. I have done the Leupold and B&L Mil Dot in the past, so any direct comparo would be appreciated.

On scopes, I like the new US Optics Socom they have just released. It is a straight ten power, 1/4moa adjustments, Adjustable Objective, 30mm tube, 130 moa adjustment and built like a tank. Retail is less than a MK4 and it has far better optics. It is going on my new rifle by GA Precision(George Gardner)I am calling "The Rock", because you will be able to break rocks with it.

How do you like the US Optics ST-10 10x model scope ? How does it
compare to the SN6 and SN3 scopes ? Size, weight, materials, reticle etc
? How do the optics compare to their primo scopes ? Are you going to use
US Optics base and rings or something else ? My last SN6 that I mounted
on my 300 win mag I had made in 12x and I used a US Optics quick release
one piece mount with level bubble. The rings and removable mount peice
are all in one. The rings have 3 screws on each side of the rings for locking
the scope in place and are about twice the width of MK4 or US optics standard
rings. As long as you remember which position you placed it on the rail
when you zeroed it always comes back to zero when you remove. Only negative
is wieghs a lot more than rings.

If any of you question the quality of US Optics, I used a SN3 3.2x17, on a NorCal 308 sniper rifle, to shoot in what I thought was a sniper rifle 200 yard match. I was one of the few that showed up without machine rests (front and rear) and a bench rest rifle. I shot 168 factory loads off a bipod and rear sand bag against the bench resters and finished second. Most everyone else had 1/8 moa adjustment 36 power scopes to see flies at 200. The darn flies were smaller than my reticle, so I just took a line of black and adjusted into the target. Without the crystal clear US Optics I would not have been able to see anything.
