    I am looking into getting a new scope and it has come down to the Millett 6-25x56 Tactical 35mm Rifle scope and the Super Sniper 10x42 30mm Rifle Scope. Does anyone have any experience with either of these scopes, or know the pros and cons?

    no experience with either, but it would seem the millet would be so high you'd have to duct tape a boat cushion to the stock to get a cheek weld.

    Sniper Central has given fairly positive reviews to both brands, IIRC. I say go with whichever one tickles your fancy more.

    i say go with the super sniper, they are like the glocks of rifle scopes. they are at a great price point and they are reliable and rugged. i have had great succes with them on rifles, and when i do get a precision bolt un in the future that is the scope that will be going on it.

    if you don't mind fixed powered scopes then you are good to go. i don't mind the and i use them just fine.

    No personal experience with either but I'm hoping for good things out of the Super Sniper since I have one on the way (SS10X42M).

    I have a millett on my Savage 10 FP. A great scope for the money. I bought on EBAY for $125.00. I have no regrets.

    I've got a Super Sniper on my M1A and it's great scope for the money. Lots of features that you would expect on a scope costing 3-4X more. I have no experience with the Millet, but I just might get one to try out.

    ETA:

    Spend the extra bucks to get the one with the parallax adjustment on the side rather that on the rear of the scope tube. It's money well spent and functions reasonably well as a rough range estimator at fairly short range.

    Yes.

    Hey there :
    I tune rifles for accuracy. I recently had a .300 win. mag 700 police that I could not get to hold a group. That scope was the Super Sniper 10x.
    It got sent back to the company and they did after some questions ship out a new one. BUT.... The turrets would not turn the cross wires where they were set. The turrets were sloppy and The side focus ring was way off.
    It was sent back to Bushnell. That scope was made by Tasco in the past.
    Now it is made in China and inspected in Japan. I guess if you get a good one then you may not see these problems.
    The Millet ? Be careful. There are a lot of copys out there. If you buy a REAL Millet you will have a good quality scope. But if you get a "copy" and send it to Millet for repairs ????? If they find that scope to be a copy you will never see it again. The Millet is high quality and will serve you well. Just make sure you get the real thing from MIllet....
    Hope this helps.
