Brother:

What happened to the Super Sniper idea??

 

Honestly, save your money and get a decent scope.

 

Those scopes you mentioned are just junk!! I didn't mean to disrespect you or your post.

I aplologize.

Those are certified crap.  Stay away from them.

 

You were given a lot of information in a different thread.   Identify your price range and see what is availble from reputable makers.  If you want particular features, prepare to pay more for something different.

Super Sniper is one of the best scopes for the money you are ever likely to find.

There are many people here and on other forums that love the SS.

I have personally never seen one, but with all the folks raving about it, you can't go wrong.

 

Get it and start shooting!!

The FF2's and the SS's are two completely different breeds of scopes. The Super Sniper is a true tactical scope. Where as the FF2's are more of a hunting geared scope. You wouldn't use the SS in a hunting situation, and the FF2 would struggle to do what the SS will do. The Super Snipers are about the best scope that $300 can get you. But you just can not compare it to a FF2 as to which is better.

You seem to gravitate toward the "tactical" style scopes, judging from your posts.

I'd get the Super Sniper and get shootin'.

 

Good luck!

Leatherwood is chinese crap, the Weavers are pretty good scopes but you are making an apples to oranges comparison.   The Super Sniper is a tactical scope.  the Weavers you list are hunting and target scopes.  I really don't know what you are looking for here.  Everyone has made recommendations to you and you keep dragging junk out of the woodwork.  A hunting .30-06 will do great with something along the lines of of a 3-9x40 scope.  Price ranges in the first group look at Bushnell Elite 3200, Burris Fullfield II, Sightron S1.  The next price point look at Weaver Grand Slam, Nikon Monarch, and the Leupold VXII.  At the next price level look at the Zeiss Conquest, Bushnell ELite 4200, Burris Signature Series, and the Leupold VXIII.  Above this you are looking at spending some serious money.  All of the scopes that I have listed here roughly range to less than $200 to just under $500.  Quit jacking with the crap stuff.
