Hi Folks,
 
I am wanting to put an S&B on my MK5 I have coming;
 
I have narrowed at this stage to two models,;
 
S&B Klassic 3-12x50
S&B Klassic 4-16x50
 
Do you think that the 4-16 S&B would be a bad choice on a 338/378 and the Paralex adjustment not a good thing on a hard kicker ??
 
Other Brands I have thought about are the Zeiss 3-12x56 V/M
 
Cheers paul.

Choice Made !!

 
Have Opted for S&B 3-12x50 Klassic #7 Reticle.....................opted for the klassic as I like that shape a little better than the Zenith and the $$ cant be justified for the Zenith despite the fact its probably the superior model being newer etc.

Boy, that didn't take long!!
2 hours and 25 minutes between post's 1 and 2.  Wink
Takes me longer than that to figure out what I want on my pizza.
 
Excellent choice. Please come back, post pics and tell us about it when you get it up and running.
My S&B 3-12 was superb. Had the #7 your getting, only lit. L7.

I think the 3-12 makes for a little more of an allround rig, I chose the #7 Reticle as on S&B's website it states that and the #8 are the best for low light as they have the thickest crosshairs.
