Re: Shepherd scopes
Got a friend that got one last year. He brought the scope and rifle (7mm)up for a long weekend of scouting, and banging the gong at long range. There was something tricky about the way he had to zero it, but once he did, he didn't have a problem banging the gong out to 1000 yards.
It has circles in it, that is suppose to be used as a range finder on deer (I guess). This last year, he spotted a large muley buck, and he later told me the 6,7,8, and 900 yard circle all worked on the bucks chest, so he had no idea where to hold (left the rangefinder in camp). It cost him a dandy buck. He's learned to use the range finder, and not to rely on the circles in the scope. I thought it had decent glass, but not really sure how you would hold on a target at like 850? Probably have to shoot it a lot to figure it out?
