Here is a couple of Images of my 300 win mag accumark with a Zeiss 3-15x44 HD5 it has locking turrets and the near manufacturing alphahunter 1 piece mount which has 35 moa of cant. The rifle has 60 to 70 MOA of dial up with the 210 OR 215 VLD can shoot over 1000 from a 100 yard zero. Never shot beyond 400 with it yet but its been stellar to that range.

I own a swarowski with the BRX reticle 6-18x50 habicht its a nice scope with great glass but I prefer dial up now. The reticle is cluttered and distances are not even 100,200 etc. In fact you have to shoot every elevation to get an informed range.

Dial up takes some getting used to and requires practice so does the BRX.

Good luck and shoot straight
