Does anyone know if the duplex is fine enough for long range target work? This is just what I've been looking for to put on my 50 BMG since I won't have the funds for a nightforce for some time. Since it has a lifetime warranty I won't have to worry about it breaking. DO you guys think it will stand up to a 50? Also-- The mildots are sold out everywhere I found them online.

Yesterday I compared a $139.95 Millett Gold, 4x12 against a $439.95 Nikom Monarch, 4x12. Strange to say, the Millett looked to be the better scope. I do not have any optical equipment or training, Just my eyes with 20/20 vision.
Does anybody know where the 6x25x56 plex can be located. I am not sure I am interested in a mil-dot. the mil-dot master looks easy enough to understand, I'm just not sure I want one.

Halfbreed-- They are avialable grom Graf and Sons, also midway (they do not carry the mildot though). Graf carries the mildot version as well as the duplex. They (Graf) charges <$10 for the mildot upgrade. My concern was that the mil dot didn't have a fine enough crosshair. On the other hand the duplex is advertised as a "medium" which isn't appealing to myself--I want a fine crosshair. In the end you get what you pay for, that's why I just ordered a 5.5-22 Nightforce with NPR2 reticle. The foreigners can take their optics and stick them up thier a$$e$. They claim to have lifetime warranties but it's not worth ruining a good hunting trip over an optical malfunction becasuse you were too cheap. Just my .02....

MOA, I understand where you are coming from, and for the most part I agree. However I do not have the money for a nightforce. Due to a severe back injury, I have not been able to work for nearly 6 years. Maybe this Millett would work with my Savage 116 fss .300 RUM, I am sure it will take me a while to out perform this combo. I would like to get a muzzle brake on this rifle. I just don't know which one to use. I have a gentry on another rifle, but I think it could do a better job.
And thanks for the headsup on Graf & Sons, Midway shows them on back order. Lots of stuff on backorder lately.

Thanks John

Hello, I am new to this board and hope you don't mind me interjecting here........... I have used one of the BSA target scopes for about 4 years and can say only that it is impressive for its price. I have mine mounted on a target grade Bushmaster AR-15 and I print sub half moa groups with it. additionally I used this rifle / scope to take both of my whitetails last year. the first at 300 yds and the second at 326 yds. The scope is accurate. however, I will also confirm one negative....... the image is simply not as clear as many other scopes I have used, in fact, my tasco world class is clearer and brighter. More to follow on the Millett, I purchased the 6-25x56 AO mil dot yesterday and will be mounting it on my remington 700 sendero 7mm rem mag. I shoot long range so hope to be able to tell you more about its long range capabilities soon.
