I don't really like shiny, but someone (Leupold?) needs to make at least one glossy black, good quality, versatile scope, to mount on shiny rifles.
Agreed. They really are beautiful! I had the clear epoxy-like coating crack on that rifle during a bison hunt. -20 degrees Fahrenheit is unkind to anything.

I'm not surprised. I've never hunted when it was that cold.

I'll be hunting high country elk in Wyoming in late October this year, but I will (more than likely) be carrying a Euromark in .300 Wby Mag. (Unless I'm so old and worn out, that I have to drop back to an ultra-light, synthetic stock rifle (god forbid).
Timber has life; even though it was felled, Quarter-sawn (I HOPE!) and laid up 20, 50, 100 years ago, it still shows through. There are planks in my house floor, that despite over 60 years of wear and tear still show through...
Natural light makes a big difference in appearance. My R8 Jaeger and sunlight highlighting the most dramatic fiddlleback I have come across.
