I presently have a March 10-60×52 tactical scope on my 6.5x47 built by Robert Gradious and love it.I just started buying parts for my next rifle that will be a 6BR repeater that will also be built by Robert.

For this rifle I am leaning towards the 8x-80x56mm tactical instead of the 10-60. Most of my shooting will be at 600 yards.

Does anyone have or looked through one that would like to share their experience/ thoughts on the March scope or should I just stick with another 60x

I know a lot of guys will question why I would want so much magnification. No real reason except I just would like to have it if needed and love the March for a scope.

I am in hopes of finding a good used one but if not I will just buy a new one.

Again any thoughts or experiences you would like to share with this scope would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I've had the opportunity to view the 10-60.  Magnificent scope.  I would have no problems with a March 8-80, I don't think.  I agree with your philosophy, BTW.  Why... because it's there.  Obviosly, you aren't going to be doing a lot of low light shooting at 80x, but if you need it/want it, it's there.  I've seen two March scopes, one was the 40x.  Price is very reasonable.  It's a "hoss" of a scope.  I would go for it.  Please provide a review.  I would like to hear about your usage of the 10-60.

March makes superb scopes.  They are easily among my favourites.

As far as the choice between 8-80x56 and 10-60x52 goes, it really comes down to how much you want to spend.  80x is only useful under the best of conditions, but the rest of the magnificatio range might come in handy.  More importantly, that 56mm objective lens will give you some tangible improvement of the 52mm one, especially at high magnifications.
