Swarovski Rifle scopes

I saw a Swarovski Rifle scope for the first time. I think it was a 5.5x 18 44 and it had the Reticle that looked like the Advanced Reticle Holland offers.

Does anyone have one?

Does Swarovski offer a program where you give your bullet BC and velocity and it give you the range for each hold over?

SWAROVSKI OPTIK - Ballistic Programs 1.27

I used this on my TDS reticle scope, and it worked pretty well.

God yes. Comparing Swarovski is like racing a Ferrari and a station wagon.

Re: Swarovski Rifle scopes

How about light gathering in the late evenings, when it really matters.

Im considering buying one and tradding in my station wagon.

I don't think you will be disappointed. I have a Z5 in 3.5-18x44 and it blows away my cheaper glass.
