I am planning my next rifle purchase is a Oly Ar-15 PCR-8 Match Rifle. I will be needing a scope for it. I would like a Leatherwood or a Super Sniper ... Please tell me which one and why... It is for personal target shooting and not competition.

Leathewood is actually a low-quality Chinese made scope that is living off of the name.

Leatherwoods bullet drop compenstation mechanism is a camming mechanism on the outside of the scope located on the actual mount. Reminicent of the first Unertl type spring loaded mechanisms, circa the civil war (well maybe not that bad). It is not competitive for your dollar in the advances that have occured in today's market. If your interested in range compenstation mechanisms check out Horus or Mil-Dot systems.
