    Not many of these Athlon scopes in NZ yet, i have recently put an Ares 4.5-27 that i imported privately onto my new 28 Nosler. I must say i like it, its got clear HD glass and tracks bloody well. A few weeks ago i did some long range validation out to 1275 yards with it, shot a group measuring no more than 2 inches at 1,275 yards, and could see the small rock not much bigger than my fist at that range easy as.

    A lot of scope for the money. Lots of adjustment per rotation, my moa version has 25 moa per turn, and 80 moa total adjustment (not sure of the numbers on the mil version) hard zero stop, a nice usable illuminated ret in low light.

    I saw the vid, how did you measure that group at 2" in the dirt at that range?

    Lol, pretty easy to see they were very close to going in the same hole, if they actually didn't eh.
