Makes the way I mount optics look like playing with Lincoln logs. Damn that's a detailed approach.

I did buy one of those Wheeler setups to make sure my cross-hairs were level to the gun but that's about it.

I've looked through Steiner binos and was amazed at how clear they were. They use some nice glass on their pieces.

Awesome write-up Eric! You're better than most of the writing editors in the magazines I've read..

Another great write-up.
Do you have any pride fowler scopes and if so
what's Your opinion of them?

Jeff,

Pride Fowler scopes are another unsung hero in the optics world in my opinion. You can get a FFP for $350ish. Example: http://www.midwayusa.com/product/144979 ... cm_vc=U112

This particular model is one hell of a bang for the buck in my uneducated opinion. It has stellar features but is a bit crude in other features like only 3 levels of brightness on the illuminated reticle. Their higher end version like the Rapid Reticle 900 run roughly $1,800 and on occasion are used in our military. PFI scopes are in service. They won several small contracts for different scope models they make and they are in use. That should tell you something if a man puts his life on the line relying on his optics...

If I was looking at an entry into FFP, I would take a hard look at PF or Primary Arms 4-14x44. They are both hard to beat for the money. As for the upper end I have no experience with them.

https://www.primaryarms.com/Primary-Arm ... 14xffp.htm

I will say if you stray off the beaten path too far away from 'the norm' like Leupold, NF, etc., purchasing Steiner, Pride Fowler or Primary Arms, they are very hard to resell and recoup your initial investment due to them not being very well known. With that said, I would buy one.

I hope my comments help.

I had a rimfire model for awhile. Very nice scope, but it had the hardest time getting focused.
That said, the overall quality of it was very nice. Dials, finish, etc.

Super! I am afraid I can't add to much more. Awesome Job! No doubt! I watched a movie on Steiner and their Quality Control was Above or equal with everyone else. I would buy one in a skinny minute. Great job on the review. You may have missed your calling. :) :D

Wow a Steiner as your first high end purchase! 34mm main tube! you are one envied guy!!! I was looking at the Burris XTR II but missed the promo with free rings. Awesome review and looking forward to range work ups, I'm sure you won't be disappointed either.
