I have a 4-16x40 Centerpoint on a .30-06 I bought from my brother. The scope came on the gun, and I don't have a replacement for it yet........so it's still on the rifle.
Initial impression was that they were heavy and ugly. That never changed and never will.
Couldn't agree more.
Aside from the weight and size of the beast, he biggest gripe I have about mine is that when I turn up the magnification past about 7X, you get nothing but blurs in the scope. A big, heavy scope with lots of magnification I can deal with, but a big heavy scope that is stuck on 6X all the time is worthless.
As soon as I get the funds rounded up, it will get replaced by a 4-12X40 Redfield Revolution, or another Leupold Rifleman.
