Is the Burris 4-16x50 Black Diamond 30mm Rifle Scope worth the extra $200 over the Burris Signature Select?  I am looking for a scope with the Ball Plex or Mil Dot recticles.  Is there a better scope for the same price as the Black Diamond?

I owned a Black Diamond but sold it about a year ago (give or take).  I was very happy with it's reliability and performance.  For $686, I'd say it's one heck of a scope.

 

Only reason I sold my was to upgrade to a Kahles CL.

good upgrade - kahles CL is about the best high-end for the buck IMO.

I had a Black Diamond 2.5-10X44 and was not impressed.  I bought a 4-16X50 and sent it back.  I think the Sinature Select scopes are a much better deal.  Save your money, or spend a couple hundred more and get a Kahles CL.
