    Has anyone had any experience with the Nikon Buckmaster 6-18x40mm Side Focus scope. This would be a coyote,PD and squirrel scope. Any comments. $300 is about my limit for a scope.

    I've got a 4.5-14 buckmaster mildot. i think for the $208 i paid for it, it has been a solid scope. however I have found the side focus to be a bit finiky (sp?) and while it does hold a zero very well it doesn't pass the square test.

    I put one 6-18 with Side focus and it is verry clear, not much experience with it yet as I have not sighted it in, Seems to be worth the money for the clarity.

    Email me if you want more info

    To my knowledge ALL side focus -when adjusting parallax you must go all the way to up [infinity] then work the parallax out on the return.

    You supposedly can not get the parallax out in the same manner as you can w/a traditional [objective ring] scope.
    I do a lot of reading on scopes and have read that info. from very knowledgable optics people.

    Not sure about the Buckmaster but their Tactical really impressed the heck out of me. Did some rudimentary box test after I mounted it on my Tactical 308 and here's the result.

    Here's what it did at 535 yards and 591 yards

    At 535 yards Exbal said dial 10MOA and here's the result of the 3 shot group:

    The half gallon water jug was at 591 say's my Swarovski and Exbal want the dial at 11.75. Here's the hit on the jug, just one shot:

    Here's where I was shooting using bipod

    That's really impressived scope performance.
