    Anyone got one of these March 2.5 to 25 scopes?
    I am looking at getting one.

    I just got one. Waited 3 months for it. Looks great. Lots of mag range and good glass in small package. It will be mounted on a new rifle that is almost finished so I cannot comment in detail until I use it.

    Well I thought they would be good so I went ahead and bought one.
    After I had tested it out I descided to do a write up on it.

    Thank you very much for that great article.

    I have been waiting to see what new reticles that March uses on the March-F 3x-24×42
    and I am also looking at the 2.5x-25x .

    My second concern is low light performance ....
    Both would be solved I believe by actually looking thru one in various conditions.

    This is still too busy for me.


    I intend to use this on an older Ruger #1 in 7mm Rem for hunting .

    I have a March 40 X with a 1/8 dot at this time.

    Any further comments and information would be much appreciated.

    So far I like my March. I just got back from an antelope hunt and it worked fine. what I like is the compact package and accuracy of the erector. No other scope is this light and still has a 10x magnification range and it is great for hunting but basically target grade accurate. It passed the box test with flying colors. I got my lope at 400 yards with one shot and was able to target shoot for fun. I have no regrets. If weight was not a consideration nor the wide magnification range, there are many good options. For my application of paper shooting and hunting it gives a lot of flexibility.
