Re: Trijicon®, Inc. Goes Long-Range with TARS™ High-Performance RifleScope

$4,000 Bucks That's insane ! I have a Weaver Tactical 3x15x50mm with Illuminated reticle Mil/Mil FFP. What can their scope do that mine can't ? My glass is as good as a IOR I had before this. I paid $750 NIB.

    It makes no since to me that they built this at this price point when guys are screaming for an upgraded accupoint.

    Oh boy, another scope in the $3500 ~$4000 range with FFP and 15 power yet it is deemed as a Long Range scope and will be defended as such with the FFP guys. I know of a few exceptions , but it seems there must be an issue with the size of the cross hairs at 20 to 25 X on FFP's. Maybe to get them fine enough they will be to small at the lowest setting. I don't know. It has been said that one of the great features of FFP is that your reticles unit of measure will remain the same when turning down the power. I say at 15 X for long range it is already turned down. But then I don't call 600 yards all that long of distance for todays rifles and technology.

    Me being one of those FFP guys, I agree. But it looks like the deffinition of LR is different for everybody, 600 yards is starting to get on out there for most. Even some of the veterans (not literally) of this site. Shooting a mile+ is rather the exception than the rule for even a seasoned LR shooter, you are one of the few exceptions. For a true ELR scope I would forgo the FFP and want something over 20x. You sir are what I would call EXTREME!!! (compliment intended)

    Bravo, thanks for the complements. I do practice alot between 500 and 1000 too. This is where the most of our shots on game are. I cant remember ever taking one of these shots below 22X unless it was an accident. I simply want the biggest target I can get. To me bigger targets are easier to hit and will make placement easier too. I tried a 32X once and mirage was an issue at times, but even then it was only cranked down to 25ish. To me the scopes like the 32 X are the ones that would need cranked down not a 15X.
