I said I was going to do it this year and I did not. But I am thinking about a new scope purchase feb march of next year. I have been looking at the march in a 2.5-25x52 I and at the Swarovski X5 and the X5i in 5-25x56 just wondering about opinions on either scope as the reviews on both seem good. they are about the same weight. This would be going on a Hunting rifle/play at the range shooting some steel and targets. They seem well matched to me so I thought I would ask some opinions and maybe some owners what they think of them as I have never seen threw either and this would be a reach in top tier optics for me. Would be the most expensive scope purchase I ever made and most guys I hunt and shoot with do not think it is necessary and it is not I am fine with the scopes I have that are half the price of these two but I want to go up into this kind of scope...Maybe I wont but I want to.
