First, Sorry to all.  My apologies.  I thank you for your shot in the arm it carried me through and meant a lot...
 
I have been dealt a *hit sandwich, everyones health is ok for the time being.  I cannot elaborate as I do not know the outcome yet.
 
I have been selling.
 
I just got rid of some more uber glass and need 2 replacements.
 
Need 20mils plus out of them I am maxed on the 20MOA bases I have on the rigs. None other available.  I would like to have it in the scope not the rings.
 
I am looking for greater than 10x on the high.
 
Anyones thoughts on the Sightron Closeouts???
 
I got invited by a friend last week and went out for the first time this year, NO JOKE.  It was interesting as I didn't feel right leaving my responsibilities for even a few hours...  I put 1000 plus rounds bolt action in that time frame didn't talk much just went to work and rang a 8" @ 1000yrds 9 of 10 and called it a day.  It was a very dreadful trip home back to "normal"... 
 
Shh...snuck out today but I haven't told on myself yet...
 
Ok enough telling stories need help replacing glass...
 
Any help appreciated...

The Sightron deals look pretty darn good.
 
It is good to see you back on the OT, Slap.

Am thinking maybe the SS MIL MIL 12x or 16x maybe to high on the low but maybe would work.

My first thought was the SS 16 Mil Mil. I just got one in myself and need to get it to the range.

There is a comparison of the SS 10x and the SIII 10x.
