I'd stay away from them as I think for the money you can get a better all around scope good with use of the higher mag, under 15 they are good but I'll stay with a different brand, NOT BEEN IMPRESSED with them at ALL
I have four of them. All 8-34x56, two MIL and two MOA. They're nice for what they are, the turrets seem to work well. They're pretty bright compared to my Vortexes in the same to slightly higher price point range, but I'd expect that because they're 56mm vs 50mm. I do like the dot center in the mil scope more than the cross in the MOA.Has anyone messed with the Athlon Helos?? That looks like an impressive scope for the $500 mark.
A friend has the 2x12 in MIL. I was able to shoot the rifle with it attatched. I was very impressed by the clarity and tactile turrets. I could see it being very useful on a rifle used for 600 yards and in.
