    I went shooting my new 300wsm load last night ringing the steel in anticipation of hunting season this fall.

    There, now we're not talking about irrigation.

    One of my buddies decided he wanted to start hunting this year so I put him in the draw with me. I took him to the range with me to shoot a 30-06 with a vintage Redfield scope that his uncle gave him. Well, 10 shots in he starts to complain about not being able to see the target (@ 100yds) through the scope. Long story short, something in the guts of the scope broke to the effect that you can't turn the power selector ring and, if you focus the scope, it shows you the target @ 1x.

    Not a good first experience with a hunting rifle for sure, but I'm glad it happened now and not when it counted.

    Kinda surprised that happened, those old redfields were a pretty good scope in their day. Alot better now then later on or while hunting though.

    Tough to mess with success! The new Zeiss scopes and reticles are pretty nice though. I just spoke with Leupold CS regarding the issue mentioned and they told me the warranty on the old Redfields died in 1997 when the company went bankrupt. There is a company that bought all of their old tooling in OK but they would charge over $100 to fix the problem. Although, they do have a "brand loyalty" discount for issues like this where you send the scope in and they'll offer you any Redfield (new) or Leupold scope 30% off up to $100 dollar discount.

    All Leupold bought was license to use the Redfield name.
