    Anyone have any experience with Millett Gold Series Varmint/Target scopes? Looking at the 5x25x56. Any comments or suggestions?

    I had one on a 22ppc and the AO stopped working I sent it back and they replaced it.I sold it and put a burris 6 x 24 x 50 black diamond on it.I like that scope alot I put another one on my 243wssm.I also have a bushnell 4x16x50 elite 4200 on my 221 fireball and that scope is very clear with no problems.

    I have a 6-25x56, 30mm tube, with mildot reticle on my 300WM. This scope has 70 moa of elevation, and from my 500yd zero I can poke holes in stuff out to 1600yds.
    I have never had a problem with mine, but my gunsmith was talking to their rep one day, and he confessed that several of the 6-25x56s got out the door missing a part. Those were locking up the ao as well. Most of those were recalled before they were sold, at least around here. I had to wait for 3 mos for more to come in. Other than that, the only other thing I ever saw, bad that is, out of them, is some of the zoom rings are quite stiff to operate.
    They have a bit of curvature of field, right at the very edges, I wouldn't put them head to head with a $1000 leupold, but I don't think you can beat them in the price range.
    As the gentleman who posted before me mentioned, even if you have trouble they will replace it.
    Its a heavy sucker, but for a piece of glass this size, arent they all?

    Thanks for the replys, I saw them in a local shop for around $500-$550, and was debating it, then later in the week I saw one in Midsouth for $234 and then I wandered about the quality, and price difference. Unless the ATN man can convince otherwise that may end up on my 300rum.
