I have not seen one yet but they do look like a good hunting scope. I am anxious to see a review too.

I'd like to know about them too.  Just not going to spend my money without knowing first.

If I had the money, I would be the guinea pig.  I would like to see the scope.  I like all of my other Burris scopes.

Myself and HELO18 have talked about this scope before.  The 2-12X40 SixX looks real nice.  Just nobody wants to be the guinea pig.  $650 is alot of cash for an unknown (untested) product.

SWFA if you can hear us helo18 and I both have said before that we'd love to do a test evaluation on this scope.

I have only looked at that scope at SHOT, but it looked better that I had expected.  One thign I really like about SixX scopes is that in leiu of a normal plex reticle, they are available with #4, which is, IMO, a more practical choice when low light shooting is involved.

The #4 reticle would be a perfect match for my 300 for hunting elk, and the power range would be about right too.  Low enough for brush hunting, and high enough for longer shots.  Maybe I will get one some day, but I think the new SS variable is first on my list.

SSgtSmitty,

I would be nice to test one, but I am guessing that the glass quality and other features will be like the Black Diamond.  Which I think is a great scope.  The obvious difference would be the reticle choices, and the power range.  As for the durability, if it is like my other Burris scopes, it will be fine, but it would be fun to put it through its paces.
