    Got a Zeiss HD5 plex reticle with target turrets (moa) sitting on my 7mmRM that I’m thinking of moving on. $1100 if it’s of interest

    Or you buy my HD5 as a step down. Going to Dannevirke tomorrow so can throw it in the truck. Offsider from NP can carry it over the saddle for me.

    If you want to save some coin and get bomb proof I would bring one of these in. No zero stop but really solid clicks. Im very impressed - mine wandered out my back door and is on craigc's RUM, and is doing just fine.

    FFP. You can go another mag range up too.

    Here it is on my 6.5
