Dave,
If it wasn't for Mac I would not be on the internet. This thing is still way too complicated. I just learned how to burn discs...
Need a puter-geek to do all the button-tapping, give me more time to shoot! I just can't seem to find time to shoot like I used to, got to fix that.

    The tactical series is a very good lineup. Crystal clear optics, solid tracking, and a tough design. They are a very good scope. They are however, on a production hold right now. Still a lot of them left in circulation though.

    The 2.5-10 is a great scope and it is being sold very reasonably right now. I have used in on a .416 Rigby and it held up to the recoil perfectly. Around 100 moa of adjustment, nice optics and brightness. 4-16 is also a fine scope but it does not have quite as much adjustment lattitude, use a sloped base and you are usually fine.

    I got to shoot much of the initial prototype testing of these scopes, have a lot of hours and ammo expended using them. No problems among about a dozen guys shooting them.

    Thanks guys thats good to know having already got the 2.5-10 I was looking a Leupold in 6.5-20 but I think I might stay with the Nikon 4-16.

    I have to say I like this scope as much as my Nightforce scopes and thats saying something. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    One more question, whats the field of view like on the 4-16x50 is it better than the 2.5-10x44?

    If there is any other scope out there better for the money then please let me know. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Thanks
