I agree with this and will take one over a Leupold. I have used many of this exact scope with great results. My AR 223 has had one on it for a few years now. It is the most mis-treated rifle I own. It rides in the truck, gets dirty, and even once fell off the top of a grain drill hitting a steel bar right on top the elevation turret. So it now has some character wounds as well. Even with that abuse it still holds zero and tracks fine.
Expect to find the 22 to 24X to be a little more hazy than the lower settings, but just crank it down a little if that is an issue for your intended target.
Now, is it comparable to a NXS, heck no, not even close. But will it work for you to bang some steel at 1000? Yes it will and all for under $300 bucks. That has surely got to be one of the best bangs for the buck, and you will be plenty happy when you remember what you paid for it.
PS, mount it up straight and true so your bases and rings do not screw with the tube alignment. This is important and some low end bases are not the great deal they appear to be.
