    Very nice scope for the money. I have a mil version of this that I use on my 22LR trainer so it does plently of dialling, I'm very happy with it.

    If it's not a first round hit you need to practice more

    Cheers lads!
    Yeah it’s a great scope and the reticle is excellent.
    Fine enough for long range varmints and the illumination is really clean.

    Have enjoyed nailing targets out with it but now it’s going to help fund a bigger faster version.

    I have the exact same scope model on my 28 Nosler. I've been very impressed with it, here it is shooting with 20 moa dialed on it at 1038 yards

    I love the 25 moa per turn turrets, I need less than 20 moa for 1000 yards, so dialing less than 1 turn is nice.
