Ordered a March Tactical scope yesterday

I've been reading alot about these scopes over the last 2 months & then at the SHOT show I go to play with them for awhile at the Kelbly's booth - it sealed the deal for me!!

I was looking for a sleek tactical style scope to put on my 7MM Mag being built by Mike Bush @ Skunkworks Rifles. This rifle will be used for hunting purposes out west.

Here's what I ordered (I know it won't fit alot of members needs on here, but I wanted it for a hunting rifle):

*March 2.5-25x42mm

*Tactical Turrets w/ 1/4 MOA adjustments & zero stop feature

*Di-Plex reticle, non-illuminated

*Second focal plane

*30mm tube

Anyone else ever run one on a hunting style set-up??


The wait is 3 months - I was told by Kelby's that each scope is "made to order" one at a time.

    I have been seriously thinking about doing the same thing in the 2.5-25 or 3-24 since before Christmas.

    My problem has been the reticle design.

    I want something that will work for hunting and have a fine point of aim at the higher magnifcations.
    The tatical reticles are too busy and a simple duplex is not the best option for me I believe.

    I am sure that if I could actually look thru a few March scopes that problem would be solved quickly .
    I am really impressed by this site. March rifle scope Reticles

    I have a March 40X with 1/8" dot .

    I do believe that in this case you get what you pay for.

    I would rather have a few great scopes to shoot with than "lots of leupolds".
    It costs the same.

    And you don't have to send them back for repairs all the time.

    I think you have made a excellent choice. The power range and size is perfect for a hunting scope and you can't go wrong with the straight duplex. The 5 year warranty is a little bothersome but if it's a quality scope which I think it is you should be good to go.

    After using it for awhile post what you think of its performance.
