    If you are thinking that sort of money I'd get the S&B.

    March is another great one,
    What sort of distance are you looking at shooting?

    If clarity is truly top of your list then Nightforce is well out. S&B would be far superior glass wise as would Zeiss (Victory/Diavari). Certainly outta my price range so might be best to wait for some of the others to pitch in. I think you need to give a few more details as to what you want it to do too like magnification needs and the sort of distances you intend to shoot to for starters.
    Importing is very easy too and is usually worth while when looking at top end product like you have suggested.

    Sightron S111 is possibly the best option for the budget conscious. Very little given up against the big boys for a lot less.

    I've been looking at the S&B but also the Premier. I couldn't find an NZ dealer for the Premier, hopefully some one will know how to get one.

    Just a thought but I think one of the West Coast boys has got one, could be wrong, can't find the post.

    None that I know of. It's a global marketplace now though and you can't go too wrong with Alex at Welcome to EuroOptic.com - EuroOptic.com.
    Baldbob and The Claw are two guys who could give you an honest evaluation of the Premier Recticles.
