    Nah will do now though cheers

    Is CDS a good system if I want to start trying longer shots? Is the dialling sweet? ( can tell ive never done it ha ha !!)
    Will it handle bush bashing?

    Sick to death of my Burris 3x9 but its a tough little bitch.

    I've bought some stuff from OpticsPlanet and been very happy with the prices of the items and their service , but all of these companies really like to stick the knife in when it comes to their postage rates ( for example $39.95 US to post a set of scope rings to Australia ).
    Even when I took into account the highway robbery postage costs I was still about $60 AU dollars better off buying from OpticsPlanet . I just wish they didn't gouge overseas customers as badly as they do , if they charged the real cost of postage it would make a " good " service " great ".

    Use that youpost or what ever the nzpost thing is called. Most times you can talk the Americans into free shipping within the states A scope from the states cost me 18 for postage to NZ

    Gibo, just be aware that CDS is elevation turret only, the windage turret is the "standard" turret for the scope.

    The Optic Zone (9% discount currently)
    Optics Planet
    Natchezz SS
    SWFA

    all of these have had good feedback from guys on here

    Just a word of warning: Optics Planet were a nightmare when I tried to bring in a scope from them direct to NZ. It went through the checkout ok then the real "checks" started coming!
