I got a Horus Vision 4x16x50 sporting 1000 with the H2(long range) reticle getting mounted on a ar-30 .338 Lapua right now. It will be a very long range target, and hunting rifle. Some think its to buisy, but I like it. Have a palm V already, will be getting a kestrel
& Exbal program(similar to Atrag but cheaper) shortly.
While I cannot attest to the durablility of the scope, I think the glass is pretty good. Better than my burris fullfield II, which I think looks as good or better than a comparable lupy.
But the main reason I got the scope was for the reticle. With a 300yd zero on the lapua @ 16x, I will still have enough "holdover" all the way out to 1 mile. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
If you like it, go for it. You could also get the reticle specail ordered in just about any scope manf. out there; Leupold, S & B, U.S. optics and more.
I got mine on a closeout special @ $399, If I was spending a grand, I'd look at a NF NXS.
