Pride Fowler Scopes?

Does any one know anything about these scopes? Rifle Scopes - Red Dot Pistol and Rifle Scopes Pride-Fowler, INC. Home of the Rapid Reticle I have done a net search and do not find much. I know they put together a reticle for Zeiss the rapid Z. I like there 10x42, a little more then I want to spend unless it is better then a Burris Euro Diamond 2.5-10x44, Bushnell 6500 2.5-16x42, or the Zeiss conquest 3.5-10x44 milldot or rapidZ600. The Zeiss is about the same price as the Pride Fowler. Sure like there reticle. Thanks
Paul

You might PM sscoyote--he has one and may have another on the way.
I don't care for the yardages in the reticle--it is limiting to me.
I would prefer teh MOA listed internally over yardage #'s
Preference on my part.

I have the 3-9X 32mm 22 Long Rifle RR, and it is my favorite LR compact scope and reticle. It is on an AR-15 .223AI, and just recald. to the load i'm using.

I just received the 3-9X RR600 reticle, and am looking forward to testing it.

Their scopes are very well made, IMO.

SScoyote, I am putting it on an AR 223 when it is completed. A DTech build. There may not be too many out there not much info, I like the 3-9x42 they have to offer would be a better field of view close up.

I have been thinking about getting one of these for well over a year and like you have looked in to every lead and read every artical there is on them.

I am thinking about putting it on my M1A and have put allot of thought into it but still have not made a choice. If you are Mil/LE you can get a discount from Shadow Enterprises Home Page it was 571.50 for the 800 model with the side focus.

If you do get it let me know how it works out for you

They're designed as a BDC reticle, so i'd imagine in a mil/LE environment they'd have to work in that fashion. As a hunter i just recal. the subtension to the trajectory of my load, put the dope in a Butler Creek ocular cover and go hunting. I really love the 22 Long Rifle reticle (really for any trajectory) as it has excellent windage reference--each main stadia is divided into quarters with short line stadia. It makes for an excellent windage reference system. It's sort of like a more practical Horus Vision system.

Drop me a line if you want.

cdrayer at rapidreticle.com

I've done a bit of shooting with the RR800 reticle on an 18" upper, using mostly 77 or 75 grain bullets.

Been awhile since I've passed through here....howdy sscoyote.
