I was wondering what kind of warranty these scopes have? is there a variable power model, would the 10 power be to much for close shooting say 50 to 500 yards

the SS series of scopes are warrantied through bushnell.

 

there is not a variable yet, but they're workign on them.

 

what will you be shooting at, thats 50-500 yards away?

 

lets assume its deer... you would be safe taking a slow walking shot on a deer within 50-100 yards, a little faster, above 100 yards, and running shots above 250, if you can shoot good enough, to lead.

 

if your shooting targets, then your good to go.

 

so i would say no, the SS10X42 isnt too much scope for 50-500, however, the 16X, or 20X would be.

Honestly man i'm going through the same thing you are i wanted to get a leupold not caring about the price tag but i really haven't heard bad things about supersnipers i'm gonna try them out for $300 it's worth it then if I'm not satisfied i'll invest the money on the leupold

If you are deer hunting...I'd wait on the variable power one to come out. As for fixed power scopes for hunting, Weaver makes a fix 6 power in their T-Series for around $265.00 plus shipping fees. But I like to be able to turn down to at least 4 power for deer hunting and even find my 3x9 scope setting on 3 power more often than any other power.

I would not personally choose a 10x for the ranges you intend to shoot. I think you were on the right track in going for a Leupold, Nikon or also consider the Elite 4200 2.5-10x40,

Not to be a stick in the mud here, but some perspective seems to be in order. The SS series of scopes came about by a specific contractual need because of a war effort. Is that war effort going to still have enough momentum (once the war is over) to maintain a market for a variable SS? How the hell would I know. Problem is I don't think anyone else does either. Is their enough demand for SWFA to gamble (and I use the term loose) the start up, initial production and market expense to go against the big three (burris, leo, bushnell) once everyone is back to thinking about hunting instead of sales to snipers? If you think so-let SWFA know so they can build some kind of pre-market data.

Roy is right on about the scope power - most hunting guides like their clients to set the scope on the lowest power they have- so if they miss they can see where it hit so as to close the hunt with a follow up shot. (Obviously this depends on light, trees, how many drinks everyone had)
