So I know that the Super Sniper can withstand a direct nuclear blast and can track an artillary peice shooting at the moon.....but hows the optical quuality on it? I heard its not all that bad, but just wanted to know what I could compare it too. Leupold VXII, Bushnell 3200? Better, worse?
 
Thanks for the input

This is a weighted scale but is skewed toward optical quality

Hopefully someone with hands (eyes?) on experience will chime in.

well see thats contraversial, cause I think burris has better  optics then leupold and bushnell. I guess its a measure of overall features.....but like i said, its opinion based

one difficulty is the fixed power part. -- comparing a fixed with a variable isn't really fair , less glass etc.  the ss I have reminds me alot of the T- series weavers.

Sorry about missing your post, Mark.
Uh oh, this is going away from the O.P. What Burris, Bushnells and Leupy's are you talking about?

well, this isnt from use, just at how i compared opcs are the gun shop. I think the Euro Diamonds are better then the VXIII's and 4200's. In fact they're in the same general area as the Conquests in my oppinion. Now before I start a war, this is only from a glass comparison standpoint. Only reason I know is cause I was checking out new optics for my dads moose rifle.

Tikka,
for point of reference regarding optical clarity;
 
 
Note the time and date.  Refer to older solunar tables and you'll see that the group was fired after sunset by about 15 minutes, using an early 90's production SuperSniper.
 
Having used the new units with improved lens coatings I can say that I think you'll be satisfied :)
