I am considering buying one of these scopes for my Rem 300 ultra mag.  Does anyone know why SWFA not carry this scope?  They have it in there samplelist, but not in the main listing.  Is it not a good scope?  I am looking for a crisp clear scope.  This rifle is for long distance shotting.  Thanks,

They are replaced by the CL series.

So was the AH series up to standards of Kahles name?  I have always had the lower end scopes for my rifles, and had no problems.  But I want to invest in a better scope for this rifle.

I think the AH was a great scope, they just made improvements to the CL line, like better optics (hard to see unless side by side) and the Multi-Zero BDC. If I were shooting a 300 Ultra, I would be concerned with eye relief. I usually don't recommend Leupold scopes as a first choice, but in the case of the Ultra mag, I would probably lean in that direction.

But is Leupold on the same quality of optics as the Kahles?

In general, Kahles is definitely a step up from Leupold, both in quality and in price.  The only AH scope I bought was a 2-7X36, and I was not impressed.

Is the CL model worth the extra $300?  It has I believe a increased eye relief.  I want to get a top notch scope for this rifle.  Thanks

When I looked through the kahles cl and the ziess conquest I thought they were on par or the ziess a little better and certainly less money.

I compared the Kahlex CL 3-9X42 and the Conquest 3-9X40 side by side, along with a Swarovski 3-9X36 and a Leupold VXIII 3.5-10X40.  The CL was easily the best scope in this group.  The view thorugh the CL scopes is unsurpassed.  I don't think I'd say it's worth twice as much as the Conquest, that's up to the buyer, but there is a big difference.

If you are willing to spend 1150 on a kahles you are doign yourself a huge diservice by not looking through a nightforce for 100 more.  The clarity isn't even close to comparable.

Nightforce are excellent optics and real huge. I wouldn't put them on a big game rifle. Kahles all the way, IMO.

Most Nightforce scopes are better suited for Benchrest/target aplications, there are only a couple of nightforce scopes that would serve well as multi purpose hunting scopes but these compact models do not have the best ergonomics IMO. The glass quality of the nightforce is a representation of some of the best Japanese produced glass available today. Any of the AMV coated Kahles are much better all around hunting scopes IMO and you have your choice of many reticles illuminated or not,FFP or RFP,30MM or 1",Metric or MOA and Multi-Zero as a option.

The kahles american hunter that I purchased from the samplelist is the best scope I have ever owned until I purchased a Kahles CL. It is even clearer than the American hunter version. To answer your question, I have had both Zeiss conquest and VX-III Leupolds and the Kahles American is Clearer than both. If you have the money I think that the Kahles CL is buy far the best 1inch scope made.
