What about the NEW Trijicon AccuPoint® - 5-20x50

I love this company and I am in the market for a new optic for my 260rem.

Who has seen one more importantly who has used one?

I have used ACOGS in Mil and have owned a few but I know nothing of this sight.

Opnions???????????

    This scope only has 50 MOA of travel, other than that it is prettty nice. The clicks do not feel as positive as some scopes nor as mushy as others. I have not tried it out in low light yet but the glass is pretty good in bright light. I have only fired about 20 rounds through the rifle I installed it on, but am pretty happy thus far.

    what do you have it on 50MOA is not that much range. I was going to put it on my 260rem I have 20 MOA base. I would like to here more

    But it'll work great for ranges less than 300m? How is the optics compared to the Bushnell Elite 4200 6-24x50?

    It is on a 308 built on a nesika T. It has talley bases and when I first put the scope on I realized I only had 8 MOA of travel left. I reversed the bases and then POI was 4 MOA about my 100 yard zero. I removed the taller rear base and put it in the mill. I removed .030 from the bottom of the taller base and reinstalled them. I now have 44 MOA of elevation.

    I never realized it before but a nesika action is level from front to back but the mounts that I have been getting from talley are not of the same height. When I put the tall base in the back I guess that I am getting +20MOA.
    It does not seem to be torqing the tubes so I am going to just let it ride.

    I would say the glass is better than the bushnell, but it is pretty subjective.
