    Vanguard Scopes

    Has any one had any experience with Vanguard /scopes? I'm interested in one of their 3.5-10x50's for a 308.
    Any feedback before I part with my hard earned?

    While I know nothing of Vanguard scopes and cannot recommend or not recommend them, please do not dismiss scopes simply because of a "made in china" label. Sure we see a lot of rubbish from there, but they are very capable of making some very good products and also some Manufacturers have shifted entire factories there to make what was once made in Germany / USA / New Zealand and are now making exactly the same product there and in some cases even shipping the raw materials there and back to do it.
