Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to this thread. This weekend was a nightmare. Anyway, I looked at those Steiners you pointed to. They do look like nice binoc's. Not any cheaper than Leupold, that's for sure. Looks like they have two different range finding reticles. One is listed as a standard mil and the other really doesn't say what it is. If I had to guess I would say it's an MOA rather than a mil but that is a total and absolute guess. I suppose either would work however, I think I would like to stay with the standard mil because it would be easier and faster to call shots to my son. Rather than figure distance on MOA, convert to drop, convert to mil and call a hold over. Lot of room for errors. Instead I could range, I already know my drops in mils, and call a hold over.
I guess I will have to bite the bullet and buy a Leupold.
