I was having a discussion with my father-in-law the other night concerning optics. He claimed his 300 Weatherby mounted with a Swarovski scope was the ideal setup for hunting Alaskan big game. I did not argue with him but asked the question, WHY? Stuttering and stumbling quickly followed my simple question. Basically, he did not know, and neither did I.
So my question to you is, why is an $1700 Swarovski PH 4-16 any better than a $500-800 4.5-14 Leupold VX-III or any other scope in the same price range.
