New sightron LRMOA?

Does anybody have any experience with these? The only thing that puzzles me is that they dont make an illuminated Reticle for the 6x24, only for the 10x. Is their tracking as good as they say?

Re: New sightron LRMOA?

I just got mine yesterday and mounted it on my 338 Edge
I took it out today, all I can say is I'm very impressed with the clarity and tracking. I love the MOA2 reticle and I have enough travel to go past a mile.
Here are some pics, I have a bench built in my back yard that I can shoot out to 1930 yds
By the way I got this on Ebay off of Opticsplanet on a best offer of $775...Now that's a deal!

That looks awesome! Do these compare to the new Super Sniper ?

Re: New sightron LRMOA?

The only thing the Super Snipers don't have is the MOA/MOA it's all Mil/MOA
I like the idea of matching reticle and turrets
As for the quality, it's a matter of preference

Re: New sightron LRMOA?

I am also very happy with my LRMOA scope. Optics are far better than my Leupold mk4 and it seems to "come up to the eye" much easier. I would've liked an illuminated reticle as well but can live without that. My only criticism is that the hash marks are 2moa and there is no small 1moa mark in between which would be nice.

Re: New sightron LRMOA?

It looks like I am a day behind LooseSniper. I got the exact same scope today, and I will have it out on the range tomorrow.

Sightron makes it really hard to figure out what you get with each model IMO. For instance, what is the difference between Target Knobs and Tactical knobs. LooseSniper's picture of the rear of the scope is the best I've seen of the LRMOA. While this scope doesn't have Zero-Stops, you can see that it does have Rotation markings (3,2,1,0,1,2,3) so you can get back to zero or see how many rotations you have cranked it up. That's great...

The turrets have a nice feel. When you turn the turrets, they are crisp and definite.

The glass seems very clear, and I seem to have 106 MOA of total adjustment.

I'll know more about the tracking tomorrow. Overall, my first impressions are very good.
