    Bob,
    If you can make it to DSC most of the scope manufactures are there and you can make good comparisons. They normally have good deals as well. If you can't make DSC the Atlanta show may have the scope manufactures there. Someone here may be able to answer that on this thread for you.

    A scope that hasn't been mentioned that you may want to look at is Vortex. All the best.

    I can't complain about their customer service. The first went down just before leaving for my first African trip, they got that one back to me very quickly. Good customer service or not, having a scope go down while on the trip is a bad thing.
    Somehow I missed this! Thanks Phil!

    Now you went and done it Bob! Sandy read this thread and now she wants to know when I'm buying her a .375 H&H. Thanks alot buddy!!!....lol

    Go with a Leupold or Nikon. Before you go with a 1.5 x 5 or other low power, are you ever going to want to use this set up on old Mr. Spots? If so, go with a little higher power with a larger objective to gather more light. You'll need it. Just a thought......

    Bob,
    I recently purchased a Leupold 1.25X4 VXR with the Illuminated reticle for my 375. I have a few other scopes (Nikon, Redfield-new style, Buris) but I always come back to the Leupold. Great scope, great customer service decent price point. Little higher than some mentioned above, but in my opinion, worth it.

    Thanks Wes Mr Spots is on the list for this rifle, even thou my 300 WM would have been plenty nothing like taking it with a classic caliber like the 375 H&H. Leupold and Nikon are two that I'm looking at real hard what would you think would be a good power for Mr Spots? and keeping in mind that I may use the same scope for shots on other game out to 300 yrds rather then packing two scopes.

    Any of the VX-III's would work great I personally wouldn't go bigger the a 2x7 myself. Good luck bobby, and if you have open sites on the new Remmie I would also recommend the Warne QD rings, just so you could utilize the sites if need be.

    You're preference really. I have a old 2x7 Leupold on my .338 that I am confident even out to 500yds even with just 7 power. Leupold replaced it with a 2 x 8 Vari-X III (I believe). The main thing is the objective being large enough to gather light for that leopard. Note, if you are hunting Mr. Spots where you can use a light after sundown, ithe objective isn't quite as critical.

    Bob,
    Check your local Wal-Mart . The one here is closing out Nikon scopes. They have a 2X7 on sale for $139.00 . That's a really good price on that scope. I'm trying to work a deal with the Mgr. to buy all he has at a better price. At that price you could buy 2 and carry a back-up scope.
