    Anyone know about these? I did a search with not much success. How are the turrets, glass, repeatable, zero stop, can they take recoil? What would they be comparable to? Bushnell, Vortex etc.

    The sightmark wont compare to the Vortex, or the Bushnell. The sightmark is designed to look "sniperish" not be functional in terms of durability, and tracking.

    I didn't think that they could be for the price. Have heard how good they are, but had my doubts. Thought it would be interesting to hear what other guys opinions where.

    I had a shooting partner last year that bought one against my recommendations. With a 308 he dialed 6 moa to get from a 200yd zero out to 750 yds. Then 7moa to get back to his original zero.

    6 MOA to get to 750 yds! My 300 RUM with a 215 Berger is around 11.5 MOA at 700 yds. So you are saying that the moa adjustments are way out? This is with a Vortex 6-24 PST. Has been a great scope so far.

    Exactly what I'm saying. For hunter who only use holdover tracking is not a big deal. The only time they notice it is during sight in. If you want to dial for range tracking is vital to success.
