I have a couple and have taken them both out past 1100 no problem, its my favorite scope actually. Way more useable than my 6.5-20 LR for a hunting rifle

You'll be fine, as stated before this is the basis of the Greybull Precision riflescope & it was at one point in time, the base for BOTW when John worked there as well. You will need target knobs for sure & I really like the previous statement about sending it to Holland for an ART reticle upgrade.... I'm considering that myself on a 6.5-20.

Quad, take a look at my post earlier--there's alink there to Darrell's business. You can read all about it. He has a school for LR shooting and is as versed on the concepts as any you'll ever meet.

That is the scope I have on my 300RUM. I am very happy with it. Lots of light and very clear with good eye relief.

There is nothing wrong with asking a question, it's assumption that gets us into trouble

ART = Advanced Reticle Technology. Check it out:
