I have the Target Dot 6-18x40 on my 300WM with a 20MOA base.....it has held zero without a problem and it tracks very well for me. I like the glass for the money and like it better than the equally priced Leupolds, but it is a starter scope and I will eventually end up with 5.5-22x50 NXS.

    You shouldn't let it bother you, you only paid about 300 to 350 for the scope? You can't really expect it to keep up with the Mark 4 or the Nightforce can you? I have had several Nikon scopes and they all have preformed exceptional for their price range. I haven't set aside the mucho $ to put on high end glass yet either. My Monarch has prefomed quite well shooting out to 700 yards so far on my30-06 (@700-1000 rds) and now on my 300wsm (@350 rds). Most of the rounds were fired at 100 and 200 yards of course ;)

    I have experience with 5 of the 6-18X40 Nikon Buckmasters. 3 of them mine and 2 belong to friends. I have seen these scopes on 17HMR, 222 Rem, 270WSM, 7mm-08, 7mm STW, 300WM and possibly a few others. 2 of mine are the older AO model, and the other is a side focus. My friends have one of each. When my buddy first started shooting his AO model he experienced about a half dozen rounds that the scope didn't track when it was adjusted. Just every now and again. That problem healed up pretty quickly (burr?). Other than that everything else has been favorable. When I purchased mine they were discontinuing the AO model and I picked them up just under $250 each. So I figured what the heck! And then about a year later they had a sale to get rid of a bunch of demos and the new model went on sale for about $260, so I bought another. I will say I prefer my Leupolds and certainly trust them more than the Buckmasters. But so far the Bmasters haven't given me a bit of trouble.

    i had one of the old ao on my 300rum with no break for 300 plus rounds with no trouble. it's now on my 17hmr and still works fine. only thing i don't like about them is the + is to thick for me. for 269.00 on eBay that's a hard price to beat

    Your right about the crosshair being thick. But for the price it is very good.
