Kahles K312 review with pics

The view in person was stunning. The plates were very easy to see and frankly I was surprised at how big they appeared when I first looked through the scope. I took my USO 3.2-17 and had to run at 15X to have the same apparent size. There was no problem centering the reticle in the plates I was holding 1 mil into the wind and it was easy to center the mildot in the plate. The 1k targets are at the tree line as viewed to the right of the scope on the horizon. The clarity and resolution of this scope is stunning.

Note the 500 yard targets in the bottom of the scope and 750 at the right.
The 1k targets are at the tree line as viewed to the right of the scope on the horizon.

The turrets track spot on.



To say I am extremely impressed with this scope is an understatement. With glass this good you don't need any more magnification. It's a fairly compact and light scope too.
I would be thrilled to run this for scope for everything from tactical matches out to 1k to hunting.

I have tested into low light and would have no issue dropping the hammer on a deer past legal hunting time in Texas.
