While walking our Sheepdog last winter I was met with the howl of about a dozen coyotes on the hill behind our place here in Vermont. We cleaned them out pretty good 5 years ago but I guess they are back in force this year. Went out and bought a Mini-14 Ranch Rifle and this Nikon Scope. Put an AIM rail mount in place of the iron sights and weaver scope rings. Wicked nice set-up at 100 yrds off a bench. The most shots here are going to be from 75 to a max of 300 yrds. I really like the 7X setting over your typical 4X scope that you would normally see on a Mini-14 and the size and weight are the same. I have bought several scopes from Optics Planet but I did not buy this one here. I should have, they do a great job and I would have saved $35.
Pros: Small / light, clean optics, holds zero
Cons: None yet
