Re: shepherd scopes 1st focal vs.

I have two sheperds, one one a 22-250 with 9'' circles matched to 52 grn load, is ok to 400 yards. The other is on a.340 weatherby, it has 24'' circles, After load work up I called sheperd and told them balistic data but all they wanted was cartrige and bulet wieght. It is not acurate at all when it comes to using the hold points longer the range worse it is. Optics are good though.

My hunting buddy had one on his 7mm STW and got a Vortex 6-24x50mm FFP MOA scope to replace the Shepard. He loves the PST FFP MOA.

i agree 100 % with you. ...i own 5 shepherds ,,, three are on 338/378 wby mags and a custom 7mm and 300 wby mag. I have killed elk at 800/900/ and 1080 yards with shepherd scopes with no problems.

The statement above says the rest.i also own nightforce,schmidt & bender ,and others but dan shepherds scopes for the money are great.

Good to know, I had one I bought about 1988 or so. I could not keep the secondary crosshair I think they called it (whichever one had the circles), from moving with use. 2 other friends had a Shepherd scope & one of those had to be sent in. I thought 2 out of three with issues were bad odds & got rid of mine.

But then again, that was 20 years ago, maybe they have made the insides tougher since then, that would be good.
