Thanks for the info. USO does have a really nice 1x8 with a red dot in it. That might be good for this application.

When all you need is "Minute of Deer" with shorter distances, there are a lot of options.
It is a fun journey determining what you want.

Good choice.
I think it has about the widest FOV in any variable in its class.

Great info, will call you tomorrow Ernie. Just got back from bowfishing with my son. We filled half a 40 gallon drum, fun time.

Yes.

IMO, if I was going to spend that amount of money I would go with a MOA Maximum in a better (higher pressure) cartridge.
Say like 260 Remington or 7mm-08, or even 308 Win.
They are short, lightweight hunting handguns, which are basically custom production specialty pistols.
Mine typically shoots 1/4 groups at 100 yards.
They have awesome adjustable triggers with easy to change out barrels.
You don't even need a go/no-go gauge.
He uses Douglas barrels primarily.
My best group with a 15" MOA Maximum at 1000 yards at a 1K match for 5 shots is 5.25"

I have several of them and they flat out work.
