I heard rumors from SHOT S&B was working on launching a 1" tubed 2.5-10x45 scope this summer... designed for the american hunter with a rear focal plane reticle... curious how much it will weigh!

Sounds like a real winner if they can get the weight down to less than 17 oz.  A Conquest 3.5-10X44 comes in at 14oz in Plex, and 15.8 in Z-600.  A-line Swaros come in less than that.  Weight is an issue for me, but then it's only my own take on things.  Don't need them to chop wood for me too, as far as toughness and how it relates to weight.

Well, if they keep making these scopes Heavier and Heavier, we'll be able to mount 'em on those little Kimber rifles so that those little flyweights don't kick our heads off when they go off!  ( Now all we need to do is figure out a way to WELD them to the top of the Kimber so that the scope doesn't fly away when we fire the rifle!)
