    yawn, thanks for the link, just trying to clarify about the turrets. the pictures you've posted are of the non-long range version? the turrets seem to be usable for long range application. does the elevation turret move up as it is rotated exposing more lines so you know which revolution you're on? this version has the 1/4 moa adjustments also? to be honest i think i like this one better. the long range has .5 moa adjustments and the turret is exposed. thinking of putting one of these on my 6wssm for a long range practise gun.

    Dave yes .25 moa adjustment and it has graduated lines on the turret to indicate which revolution you are on.I use a stock pack with a zip pocket so I'v gotten into the habbit of putting the turret cap in the poket if I neen to remove it but I can cover most of my normal hunting with this with rifle with the BDC reticle.Be aware though it is very fine if you hunt alot in low light

    Mate the thin section of the reticle is .08 moa on 16x so at 400 yds it would cover about 1/3 of an inch.The reason I mentioned it is because in low light conditions it came be hard to pick up. Im talking well after sunset here not just an overcast day.

    had an opportunity to use one this weekend. mounted it on .223. not overly impressed, glass is "ok", but NOT a "high grade" by any means. Reticle is to thin for any kind of long range work, i lost the hash marks a couple times against the background. .5 moa clicks on elevation are not fine enough for pdog shooting. over all, not as good as the NIKON .223 3-12 (BDC) that I also used. I think, for the money, there are better scopes available.
