Re: shepherd scopes
Sir, I have 4 Shepherds now and like you said in your post, if you pay attention to the ballistics the scope is set up for, you can't go wrong. I have killed elk at 1000 yards with my 30-06. Many at 600 yards. If you get used to the loading for the ballistics and can judge what an 18 inch area is--it is by far the quickest and easiest scope to use for long shooting! There is no figuring out how much you need to shoot over the animal. You just put the circle on that fits and pull the trigger. That is simple enough!! Hope this helps.
