Welcome, I'm new to this site too, but I was spoiled with a sniper Dad so I've been sending long since dad put the 30-06 in my 12 year old hands. Still have that rifle.
What rifle, calibre, optics are you running?
Wow I am sure you picked up much info from you dad.
I have a Rem 700 in 7mm rem mag with a Vortex Viper HS 4-16X44.
After reading the reviews and doing alot of research the Viper made the most sense for my current situation. I have to say I am pretty happy with the scope for the price I feel I got everything I wanted.
