my wife and i went scope looking today. after viewing several burris,nikon, and leupold. the one we wanted at first was a burris. but after chatting with my buddy and realizing some discount related info. we decided to drive home empty handed. we wanted to discuss it a little. well, long story short, my wife didnt want me to feel left out so on the way home she says well, i'll get the leupold vxr, and you should get the nikon p223... seemed like a fair deal to me. so i let my "guy" know. and he will be ordering them this week. i'll be getting a great deal! not sure i should tell you the price .. pays to have some one on the inside anyone have any good or bad comments on these 2 scopes?
