Re: Shepard Scopes?

S1,

I would be interested in hearing why you feel this way about the Shepherd optics.

I have one on a .22LR and have enjoyed it thoroughly. No experience, however, with a centre fire application.

Is it the engineering/design that you dislike?

Thanks.

I have one on my .300 Win mag and one on my .22 rimfire. I believe they are the "best" scopes for hunting. They are very fast and accurate. They are not target scopes.

I better add something. I sort of forgot this is long range hunting. They are the best out to about...say ..600 yards,and shorter.My friends wife killed a deer with hers at 800yards.

Re: Shepard Scopes?

You are probably right about the click values,but because of the way the Shepherd is made I almost never change the settings. I don't know about the durability issue,mine works ok for my 300 Win mag. This is a hunting gun so it is not shot as often as a competition gun would be.
I'm hunting tomorrow. I have a Nightforce,a Leupold and a Shepherd,I'll be taking the Shepherd.When I go to competition or if I'm shooting long,I go to another gun with another scope.
