    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.

    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.
