    Gregg I have had one on a 6.5-284 but switched to NF i also have a 4.5-14-50 on a 308 that I have they have pretty good glass and the knobs will repeat corrections. I went with NF 5.5-22 for better glass and more adjustment.

    I've got two, a 6.5-20 and 8.5-25. I've killed a Bull elk, cow elk, and a coyote using it. Unfortunately, none of them were really long range. Bull was 300ish, cow was 200 ish, and the yote was 140 if I remember. I've killed paper and rocks out to 663 yards, and I've been really happy with it so far. Last day of my recent cow elk hunt, I tripped and dropped the rifle. It landed on a rock, with the windage knob breaking the fall. Unfortunately I haven't been able to check and see if I lost zero--hopefully this weekend I'll be able to make sure it's okay.

    Ive had that scope with TMR on a 338 Nm for 3 years,wanted a lighter scope for packing but LR. I shot a pop can at 1002 yrds with it also 6'' group at 1000. I love the scope, taken game to 850, but I shoot rocks in mountain terrain out to 1500
