I have used the scope primarily as a tool to assist me with long range rifle competition. Being able to see the detail of my rounds hitting the target helps me to adjust for windage and elevation. The same also applies to scoring other competitors.
I have compared my scope to others that are twice as expensive and found that this scope meets my needs satisfactorily from 50 to 600 yards.
In using the scope in competition shooting the use of an adjustable mount that does not impede my positioning is important therefore I do use a different type of tripod than the one that came with the scope. The angled eyepiece allows me to view the targets without getting out of position which is critical in this type of shooting.
Pros: clarity is great, magnification meets my expectations, field of view is excellent
Cons: Mirage sometimes affects viewing at high temperatures and extended range, Parallax affects view just a bit but is not significant
