I have 2 Shepherds,a Leupuld and a Nightforce.If I believe I will be hunting at 600 yards or less, I believe the Shepherd can't be beat.
Beyond 600 or for targets,the Shepherd is not my first choice.
I have one on my .22 and love it. Same thing though.Fantastic for hunting,but for real precision work, not my first choice.
