Hey guys just wanted to let you know I bought my first Swarovski scope. I purchased a 270wsm and figured I'd just go ahead and get the extra magnification.
 
WOW!!!!!!!!!! This is a great scope, kinda long & heavy but the magnification & glass are awesome. IMO the Zeiss Diavari models still have slightly better glass, optical clarity & low light performance.
 
But if you are truly into shooting targets are at game at longer ranges 300 yards plus this is a good scope. Those of you guys that hunt whitetails in vast bean fields like I do here or sheep, antelope or muleys at a long distance this is a great scope for that type of hunting. In fact it may be too good. I don't see how anyone "even novice shooters" could miss an animal standing broad side with this scope even at 300 yards.

I got the BRX reticle. My only complaint with this recticle is its rather complicated or the bars don't match evenly like the Zeiss Rapid Z recticles. For instance with this particular gun and load my second aiming point is 300 yards after that the numbers get confusing. The next point is like 378 then 449. Kinda weird but Swaro gives you a ton of decals where you can write this stuff down and carry with you in the field.
