This is what Chuck Hawks had to say about the VX-L

 

"The VX-L is, across the board, the finest riflescope that I have ever owned. I am not generally a fan of riflescopes with large front objectives, but I was so impressed by the VX-L that I purchased the test scope from Leupold.

If you need a scope with this approximate magnification range and a 50mm objective, I strongly suggest that you consider a Leupold VX-L 3.5-10x50. The benefit of a lower mounting position and the consequent lower center of gravity is a crucial advantage for a hunting rifle. You can spend more for a 10x variable scope with a 50mm objective lens, but you simply cannot buy the advantages offered by the VX-L from any other manufacturer at any price. "

 

It's American made, It's got the best garauntee on the market, That's why I choose Leupold !!!!

Thank you for posting.

 

Chuck Hawks reputation aside...... 

 

I had an opportunity to shoot with a B&C reticled VX-L recently and I thought the glass and scope overall were VERY nice.

 

This threads going to draw some fire, friend. 

(Maybe you already knew that when you posted Mr. Hawks comments, maybe you didn't.)  Shrug. 

 

Guys, lets keep this one friendly AND productive.

If at first you don't secede...try..try again.

I have a Leupold 3.5X 10 -56 On my browning 243 wssm, its a good scope but not as good as my swaro, I bought mine at SWFA for 700 too. I guess Shurm diden`t read about SWFA`s 110% price match

I have had the swaro for several years and it was around $ 500 then with the fall of the dollar they have gone up considerably I think they are 9 something now.

I do not think you will find better service on you scope that at Leupold unless you consider Super Sniper which in not a variable or Swift scopes where you just take it back and they give you a new one. I don`t feel the swift is as high a quality as the Leupold VX-L  but it is a lot less money. If you look around you will find a lot of the Leupold components are not US made just like all the scopes. But a phone call to them will get excellent service just like Super Sniper at SWFA. they do take care of customers.
