I purchased two of these over the years and I am very pleased. The simplicity of this scope make it an ideal scope for my Vermont deer stalking. I have used this scope model on both a Howa .223 Rem. for calling predators as well as on my M96 rifle built 1905 in 6.5 X 55 Mauser for deer hunting. The generous eye relief and clarity make it a fast handling scope for the thick Vermont cover. Regardless of the critter this scope has helped me bag it keeps on assisting me harvesting fur and venison. The one on my M96 6.5 X 55 scored again this season with a nice Vermont buck.
I bought two of these scopes in the 1980's for two Sako rifles in 7mm mag and .300 Wetherby Mag. I have hunted with both until the 7 mag was stolen from my home about ten years ago. Both the rifles and the scopes have been excellent. They don't ever miss, only the shooter does. The work part of their use is constantly adjusting for the current conditions. As I move through the mountains, usually Colorado, New Mexico or the Texas Hill Country, I leave the power setting on 6.5 and continuously adjust the parallax for the anticipated distance. I get almost constant criticism for using a "target" scope for hunting with most of the comments being about one's inability to hold such a scope "steady." My response is that no one can hold any scope "steady" in hunting conditions; the lower the magnification, the less you will notice the movement of the crosshairs. I find that with the higher magnification the movement of the reticles is over a smaller portion of the target and thus, my accuracy increases. The high power scopes work for me and that is all that matters. Thanks for such a clear and accurate product. Almost all my scopes are Leupold (I have some "used" rifles that had scopes on them and I left them on if they were on target). Never found anything better at any price.
