Re: Dialing and click values

WYcoyote, you are correct. I was pretty well set on a Vortex Viper, until I came across those and their reviews. Did you purchase one, and are you happy? Everyone here pretty much confirmed what I was leaning towards. The biggest reason I was considering the higher magnification was for mirage reading. The scope on my .22-250 that I mentioned is 10-40, and at the higher powers, you can really see it. I bought that setup when I was about 16, and shot a fair amount at my local range at the time which went out to 400yds. I would use the higher mag to try and guess wind, but would never shoot above 20x or so. I always used holdover, only punched paper. This forum is such a wealth of info, it has inspired me to really step up my game and get more scientific about my shooting. I can't remember how many times I've seen a deer at 400-500 yds, and have never considered shooting at it, always trying to stalk closer, rarely successfully.

Re: Dialing and click values

I really like it so far but just temporarily mounted it to check ring and base clearances on a Savage build I'm doing. Still waiting on the barrel from Benchmark. It's in 6.5-.284 Norma with a 25" heavy sporter tube.
I'm happy with the pop up turrets that are resetable to zero.
Heck of a value for the $$$.
