The reticle seems more precise than most mil-dots I have seen the dots are small, and also has four dots instead of the three I have seen. Just allows for more range without dialing, which is good. The reticle is crisp and clear, the only concern I have is dividing those mils into 1/4s and less, the booklet says 1/10 mils can be accurately divided if you become experienced with the scope.
The side focus works fine I guess, wasn't expecting it to not work, so not really much to say on it. I wish it was "expanded" so you could dial to a certain range a bit more accurately, but maybe you don't have to be dead on, I shall see after I get to stretch it out on the range a bit.
The power ring works fine too, but I must say it's exceptionally smooth. I enjoy turning the power ring, as odd as that sounds. Never felt a scope like this, the power ring almost turns itself wherever you want it to go. The "12" is red to indicate where milling is accurate, and 6x and 24x are twice and half mil spacings respectively.
I tested the scope on a bore-sighter and it tracks dead on. The 6mm Ackley doesn't really recoil much so I expect it to stay that way. I went all over with the knobs, and they came back to dead center each time.
The glass is also pretty good, slightly better than my Burris Signature Select 8-32x I would say, and brighter since the objective lens is 10mm larger. I will compare it to the Leupold Mark 4 6.5-20x whenever it arrives.
