    Well, you can see twice as close with the 10-50x60. How big do you want the target to look?

    The better option for what, hunting or FT ?
    Is weight an issue ? (10-50 over 1 kg)
    Is the Lynx not a 6.5-20 ?

    no i saw on lynx's web site that it is 6.5-25x50.
    will be used for FT heard that the big nikko goes for 3950 so what does the smaller one go for?

    think i would prefer the lynx over the smaller nikko but the big nikkop over the lynx.

    for FT go for the big nikko, all rounder...........the other 2 will do just fine. have a look @ nikko nighteaters 6-24 X56 SF as well, very well priced..........iirc retails for R1800.

    there's also lynx 6.5-20 X 44 SF

    which nikko is that? targetmaster? or diamond sniper 6-24 x 42?

    i think the "small" nikko is only a few hundred less than the biggie.

    imho......either go big or go home.........ie the big nikko or the night eater/leapers.

    If you are buying any of the "big" rifles you mentioned why buy a small scope. For FT bigger IS better. Wont get a scope under 40 mag.

    $1030 x R6.50 (more or less) = R 6695 ( R 1000 more than a S400 - more or less)
    Then we still have to pay VAT and the like.

    $1000 = R9000 normally once all your costs are covered

    lynx/leupold.... quality in a scope is the unltimate factor in my opion....

    I had a BSA, that when the parrelax was turned, it lost its orignal zero point....
    I cant trust scopes like that.... lynx/leupold/nightforce are made with a high spec ratings... and better tollerances.... thats why they the price they are....
