    I would plump for a Mk3 big Nikko, in fact I liked them so much I have 5 of them. :D

    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 .??? HOLLY:):D

    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 ;)

    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.
