    Hello all. (Nikon Buckmaster 6-18x40)
    Does anyone on the site have any first hand knowledge with the scope turrets holding true to there zero after being adjusted up and down? The scope is 1/8 per click. I know they are a lower end scope but fishing for info. If bought it would go on a light 243W for deer and yotes. Looking to get some mid range distance to about 600yrds. The scope also comes with a BDC retical. Thanks....

    Hello, Looks like you already found another thread that had some info on this scope... As for the BDC retical, it is a little large for practical use. the circles are a little to big to be used for extended ranges. It may be a little handy once you get used to it, for quick mid range shooting, but for precision shots I'd recomend turning the turrets.
