WTF!!! are you smoking? Why not stick to your AR stuff. Of all the searching (Online and in a Library) not once have I ever seen that Sgt. York was taking shots at 600+ yards. I did a very in-depth research paper on him while in the Army.
I am not going to take anyones side in this argument. All I can say is if I had the money every one of my rifles would be wearing $1000+ scopes. Right now mine are in the $500 range and they work for me.
