PS: This one doesn't increase the power very much, but helps with the mirage and yes I would do it over again.

Thanks for the input. You got me beat...Id be glad to hit the target at 1000 yards...

    They work great for some and others hate them.
    I have two and love them.

    Buy Mikecrs and try them or borrow one to try on your scopes

    While they may be sufficient for paper target shooting, they are seriously detrimental to hunting resolution/contrast/brightness.
    They sit in a drawer somewhere

    It's embarassing because there was never any real reason to think that that this would work without costs(nothing is free).
    And I should have known better
    Input much appreciated!
