    Athlon Optics real world review

    I'd sure be interested in what you think of it when you get it mounted. Always good to hear other opinions from guys with higher end stuff.

    Athlon Optics real world review

    I have a Midas 4.5-27 and really like it. If you are using reticle holds it's accurate at 15x. Personally I find my sweet spot on that scope to be around 20x when I'm trying to stretch it out. That's just where I tend to land. I think that above that the eyebox gets finiky for me but ymmv. I...

    SE Alaska Brown Bear

    Not really sure what's available for the 416 rem.. If I remember right he was shooting Hornady 400 grain DGS.

    Me too. I have one on order but not sure when they will be out. Should be everything the BTR is but with capped turrets.

    Athlon Optics real world review

    As with most of the optics world, I think that depends on which tier of scope you're used to using and what you're interested in. The Midas glass is second only to the Cronus glass in the Athlon line. It's advertised as HD glass fully multicoated blah blah blah. It's the best scope I own...

    Athlon Optics real world review

    This is a review of the Athlon Midas BTR 2.5-15x50 riflescope and the Athlon Ares 10x42 binoculars that I used on my recent Alaskan brown bear hunt. If this is in the wrong place or not allowed please move or remove. I am just a nobody, regular Joe hunter and these were my personal experiences...

    .204 45 gr. Hornady

    Couple guys on the .204 ruger group on Facebook use them. They seem to really like them. One guy shoots feral hogs with them.

    SE Alaska Brown Bear

    Excellent as far as I can tell. Didn't recover any. Shot it twice. 1st time 100 yards quartering to me, 2nd 140 yards broadside. Both pass through. Off shoulder was destroyed. Lots of blood. Buddy shot his twice with a 416 Rem Mag at 35 yards with 400 gr solid and they also passed through but...

    SE Alaska Brown Bear

    Between the two of us over 10 days. Most were sows and cubs.

    SE Alaska Brown Bear

    We each saw around 40, though some of them were the same ones. I'd guess between the two of us around 60 different bears including cubs. First 6 days was pretty poor weather, then 3 days of great weather.

    SE Alaska Brown Bear

    Just got back from a brown bear hunt in SE Alaska. My good friend and I went 2/2 with Adams Alaskan Safaris. I got a decent last day 8' square, 24" skull bear, my buddy got a fantastic 9'7" square, 27+" skull. Dale Adams is a great guide to hunt with if you're looking for a brown bear. I...
