This is a lot of scope for the money, and quality to back it up.
I have had it on my 300 Win Mag for a year, and it has held steady. The optics are bright, clear, and no discernible color distortion at the edges. The knobs click sharply, are set low for hunting, and the side focus is spot on. The dead hold reticle is unobtrusive. The magnification for which the reticle subtentions match the calibrated drops has a detent and an easily noted visible marker (I believe it is fiberoptic). The 24X setting is beyond this setting--see the reticle specifications. It compares well with my Leupold VarXIII of similar power priced 30%-40% higher, but this one has lower turrets and easier mag ring.
Improvements could include a locking eye piece ring to preserve the diopter setting once adjusted....a minor point.
I liked the scope enough to order a 44mm 4-16 x version for another rifle. Certainly these scopes are worth investigating if Schott glass, USA or Teutonic scopes are not on target with you wallet.
