    The old eyes needed something a bit brighter. Couple of years and I will need something the size of a milk bottle on it.

    Yeah. Its only a little .243 shooting to 500 max, and I wanted to keep the weight and size down. A step up from VX2 lightweight, thats for sure. Looking through it, I never realized before how much world there is out there.

    Five shots to sight it in. Then dialed to 425yds and hit 12” plate first shot, and then 547yds. First shot again. Dials well. Very bright and clear.

    Very pleased. Thanks Dreamer.
