    I have the same setup. Are you using hand loads or factory? what are you shooting?

    use this scope on my .300RUM, works great, stadia lines match well to 700 yds with scope at 12.7 power.

    just put the same scope but in a 50mm objective on a sendero 300 win mag. did my barrel break in a few weeks ago with 150 grain factory loads and when i took it out to 700 yards it took some adjustments with the power to get it perfect but after that it was great. Im looking forward to getting a handload developed so I can finalize my power setting. you should be excited, its a darn good setup. i wish i had the time to get out more with mine right now. good luck and let us know how development goes.

    I have two of them. Both have been great scopes. They are both on rifles I carry pretty much daily and abuse constantly and I've never had the slightest issues with them.

    The one I had on my 7mm Rem killed six deer and over a dozen hogs at ranges exceeding six hundred yards in low light conditions. Since it moved to the STW it has killed dozens more out to 1000yds. At the latter I'd prefer a little more magnification which is why I moved up to the 20x and 50mm obj.

    The one I have on my .204 has killed prairie dogs (pickup loads) regularly at 300-500yds.

    Great scopes for the money.
