I mated this scope to a brand new Remington 700 CDL in 7MM-08, and WOW, it's a great combination. I chuckle at all the other guys who have to use cheap spotting scopes just to see their paper holes @ 100 yds. Straight away, I'd say if you need a spotting scope at 100 yds then you bought yourself a cheap and/or under-powered scope. I wear glasses, but at 10x power I can easily see every shot in my groups. Focus is perhaps not QUITE as crisp at max power, but certainly nothing I would complain about at this price point. As you can see in the above "cons" section, the ONLY thing further on my wish list for this scope would be for the mil-dot reticle to be in the first focal plane, thereby allowing me to make up one set of ballistics cards for ranging in the field. I do, however realize, that getting that RIGHT is difficult, and may simply not be possible in this price category. To my knowledge, Barska is the only maker offering FFP reticles...OTHER THAN the biggest name boys that cost 10 times more...Nightforce, Schmitty, etc. I selected the non-target turret version, partially for esthetics, and partially because I don't need too great a degree of granularity from what is a deer hunting rifle...
