Added one a while ago. 12fv on sale. Put a crappy Cabela's scope on it so I could put my Nightforce back on the win mag. Burris xtr 25moa rail. Did some work to a Bell and Carlson varmint tactical to make it fit nice. Grand total in the whole thing is $800 and it shoots stupid. 109 yard group.

I have a 12fv cabelas special. Paid 200 after rebate. **** thing shoots lights out. So the bc stock did not fit well?

It fit all right. Good enough for most, and tight. Problem was it was a little too tight in some areas.

If you're rifle system puts down a group like that, I'd say that wasn't too crappy of a scope. I'm still evaluating one of these optics, on a mid cost build, and it does what it's supposed to.
It's not great. Gets fuzzy in the high end. Parallax is pretty sensitive. Not real bright. 25moa rail puts it close to it's limit. I can't say how it tracks as I haven't shot at distance with it yet. As long as it holds it's zero, I'll be happy. It's a fun plinking gun.

I'v the Covenant 7 5-35x56 and the only issue is the clarity at max power, tracking, turrets, reticle spot on.
