I had to work a lot of overtime this fall and missed a lot of bowhunting so, I figured with all the extra overtime money that I should buy something hunting related. I ordered a Leupold Crossbones scope, mostly cause someone else is always saying how nice his is. Well I put it on last night and shot it after work tonite in the rain. I think I'm really gonna like this scope, it is so clear. Also had to get new rings so got the leupold rings, they are nice too.
Did I mention how nice and clear it is [thumb]

Huh, wonder who that might be  [rolleyes] ??  
They are really bright in low light at the beginning or end of the day. Not to sure about the fine crosshair's in the dark woods though.

Yea, the only thing that I liked about my old scope was that the crosshairs lit up red or green.

I mostly hunt field edges and gas pipelines and had no problems during "legal" hunting hours.
I took the crosshair picture for another guy that was asking me about the scope, he's in Quebec an was having a tough time finding one.

Thought you meant you got a pair of specs. like Bruce has...or mine, they're thicker! [frown] Did you know that Bruce is a sales rep. for them and gets a % of what you spent? Why else do you think he was pushing it so hard! [rofl]

I wish I did! They are definitely a lot brighter than the Excalibur varizone I had on my exocet.

You must have gotten lucky to get that one!
The guy from Quebec wanted one for 3D shoots, I don't know if he found one or not. He was shooting a Twilight DLX on a Equinox. He said his scope would shoot a few inches high and/or/maybe to the left or right every so often
I might be wrong but it seems on the Excal forum, guys have problems with Excal scopes. After a while they don't hold zero. I never had a problem with the vari-zone, just wanted better, brighter optics.
My wife has a Parker scope with the illuminated reticles, she really like's it, when you look thru it you can see the name "Hawke" near the top of a lens. Hawke is releasing a "new" XB30 1x5  calibrated up to 450 fps.

Leupolds are hard to beat though!
