Very Good scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MD Written on January 20, 2014
This scope is nice but a mixed bag. It's large, long and heavy, but 56mm objective is bright. Needs high rings on many rifles. This scope is sharp to 24x or a bit more but at 32 is slightly soft. Not significantly worse than many other mid range scopes though.
If using to range for FT, it has a nice 4" sidewheel with an included pointer, but the pointer is black and hard to see. The angular space between yardages on the sidewheel is less than my AEON or Mueller but the target seems to snap to focus a bit better.
The reticle is basically aweseome, not too busy and quite fine. It illuminates nicely too if you feel that is valuable.
The box it comes in is kind of awesome, but I'd prefer it come in a more pedestrian cardboard box like others and save some $$ or get some nice rings with it.
Locking eyepiece is a big plus. Turrets are solid, and clicks are easily found and heard. They are zero reset and lockable.
At $500 I feel it's too costly and prefer my Mueller, but the Mueller does not have the reticle. If you can get it at a discount, it's an excellent scope.

Pros: Nice thin reticle, illuminated, includes sidewheel, nice turrets, includes pointer for sidewheel, lockable eyepiece, lens covers, awesome carry box
Cons: Heavy, long, expensive, range pointer in black hard to see, not super sharp at 32x, does not have large angular sidwheel diplacement while ranging,...

excellent long distance scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, AL Written on October 20, 2013
8 whitetails dropped instantly with head shots from me, and 4 others from colleagues that borrowed my rifle over a 2 year period in 3 states. Ranges were from 150 to 375 yds with the scope set on the max 32 power setting. Once the ballistics are confirmed at the range with chronograph data the killing is guaranteed!
Pros: extreme accuracy
Cons: learning the SR 12 ballistics...
