I am new to this website, but I have over 6,000 posts over on RimfireCentral.com (RimfireCentral.com Forums - View Profile: Trent)and a few hundred posts on 204ruger.com and snipershide.com. I can also provide my gunbroker.com profile and my non-gun-friendly eBay profile as well. I am extremely trust worthy. I have had this scope for about 6 months and haven't used it. It is basically brand new, but without the box. I had it mounted in Leupold QDW rings on my .204 but never took it out shooting. I had planned on using it for a coyote scope. It has absolutely fantastic glass. I would pit it against my Leupold Vx-III scopes any day. Today I spotted a great deal on a Nikon Buckmaster 6-18x40 and bought it to replace this one. (Hopefully I get out and use this one!) Not a scratch on it, and the glass is spotless. BDC reticule is awesome. $235 shipped.
