    S+B have also just announced a 1-8x24 Zenith that looks interesting.

    the 1-6 swarovski scopes are nice, worth every penny imho, my boss is using this scope on his 375 h&h on a bear hunt on the 24th. Swarovski Z6i 1-6x24 BRT-I Reticle - Swarovski Rifle Scope 59135
    it's also a nice scope on an ar15 style rifle for 3 gun. i've also used the trijicon and nightforce 1-4 scopes with success on large caliber rifles Nightforce Optics - NXS 1-4x24. the nightforce is heavy, but the most rugged scope by far

    as for the schmidt and bender 1-8, they have been pushed back for about a year now, they are having trouble getting the reticle in the first focal plane and the red dot in the second focal plane to work well together. they also raised the price on the 1-8 and 3-20 scopes 600$ recently

    most current ETA on the schmidt and bender offering is August, but like i said, it's been pushed back for a year so far

    Don't know about USA, but the S+B 1-8x24s are listed and priced for next day shipping on UK sites - GBP1696.55p at York guns. Not cheap.
