    March 2.5-25 x 42 Hunting scope FS

    Up for sale my March 2.5-25 x 42 scope. This was traded with @R93 in August and is is very good condition. I have used it very little and R93 the same I believe. It was returned to March under warranty around 18 months ago and we suspect a new scope was returned.
    This is on my 243 and is overkill. I was thinking of putting it on my RemMag but I have a Premier LT on that barrel and it is a better scope for me.
    Looking for $2100
    The ocular cap has a Leupold alumina cap on it . I had no real desire to take it off so did not try too hard but cannot remove it at present. I'm sure it could be removed, I just can't be arsed.

    Shamelessly copied from another thread

    Ill try to get some pictures up soon if anyone is interested. Some slight exterior marks but very light. It has been in tape of most of its life and the Blaser rings don't leave much marks. Lenses are great.

    Don't really get the hang up on mil vs MOA. A clicks a click to me and I just follow what Shooter tells me. Seams to work for me.

    Don't see the issue myself either.
    Just wind it on as you need it😆
    Only like using mils in navigation when compiling a resection due to more accurate prismatic compasses available

    I don't know @R93 will.

    I think the reticle may have wandered?

    They said they replaced the eyepiece.
    I got a full report on the repair with it when they sent it back.
    Totally replaced the scope imo as the tube had no marks that I made on it fitting the after market blaser rings on.

    No! But if you called support weapons in on yourself because you couldn't do a re section you most likely would end up with one.😤

    Common old duplex (March calls it DE Plex) reticle. Easy to use rather than some of the Christmas trees you can find.
