Feed back needed on both please
If the scope is for FT then out of the two I would choose the Nikko - not the mk3 but a mk1 or mk2 secondhand.
I would plump for a Mk3 big Nikko, in fact I liked them so much I have 5 of them.
The reason I rate them over a Mk1 or Mk2 is that they don't white out when the sun is directly in front.
The Mk 3 doesn't snap in like the others do but they are extremely good range finding scopes, the only scope better is a Leopold Competition Series 40/45.
Thanks for the replys.
Any body else have any feed back.
I have a another question for you guys ..... Why don't more company's do a 10-50/60 scope surely more mag is better to see a target better ??
I am new to rifle shooting go easy
Not many shooting styles need such a wide mag range (or as high)
The optics really have to be good at higher mag - so the cost goes up - couple that with the first point and you don't have lots of shooters clammering to buy them.
The busnel elite 6500 is with out doubt the worst FT scope i have ever bought , the big nikko is a tool . it does the job but is heavy and does not really give pleasure to use , try a Lupe Comp X in 35 mag with a three inch side wheel , no bigger cos it gives great big gaps between ranges . 30+30 ret , the dots are to small . the bigger ones are more accurate for ranging , but darker and harder on standers . the 35 mag does it all .???

Had a 35x, sold it as it is not a patch on a 40x or a 45x.
All things considered a 40x is the best for ft.
I originally bought 2 40x and 2 45x from Premier Reticles with a view to keep the ones I liked best.
Kept the 40s and sold the 45s.
The problem with the 40 and 45 is when it gets dark , rainey , dark targets in the bushes and so on . if they were 56 mil obj , then yes i would have the 40 . i lost one target to range at the euros . the one under the rhododendron bushes by the fence . that was a dark one ??? HOLLY
I have used a 45 mag comp complete with a 6 inch sunshade for well over a year and never struggled to see a target yet. Even ones burried in bushes.
It also ranges better than my 35 mag comp - if I was to choose one it would be the 45 mag every time.
Anyway - all this is not really helping the thread as the op didn't ask about the Leup
Big Nikko, by a country mile.
I can recommend a good optometrist.
That mate is cos you are used to looking into a deep dark wallet , that the sun or light has never seen the inside of ??? HOLLY
PS mind you i have heard rob's is deeper . oh and empty .
What's the difference between the target master 10-50/60 to the diamond ? A part from a couple of hundred pounds.
About ten or fifteen targets on a G.P course. Save your money buy a second hand nikko diamond mag.
I promise you you get a target master you end up getting diamond within one year. But it's your money and your choice.
You may be right - although my eyes are not as good as they a couple of years ago Old age is starting to catch up with me.
My body think's it is 105 . my mind think's it is 27 . i will stay with the mind ??? HOLLY
Ah but i went home with some money ??? HOLLY
