    +1 @7mm Rem Mag, yes they are nice and light. And 700 - 750 yrds on my 300WSM is plenty far enough for my hunting. And yes you can reach out further using the post, but from memory?? I thought the top of post on standard plex reticle was 4 moa ?

    On 18x its 10.5 on mine but this is a the 4W not the standard duplex. . Being SFP you can increase the value by reducing the magnification so on 9x it would be 21 etc tc
    I came into this world with nothing and I still have most of it left.

    $209 for a custom turret I believe, I'm going to try it with the standard one at the moment but I do have the load sorted and have field tested the distances should I go for a custom turret. The amazing thing was when I field tested my distances after setting it up with Swarovski's recommendations it was bang on at every distance out to 500 meters. The boys at Swarovski really know their stuff

    Iíve got one on my 7mm rem mag suits it nicely and with a 200yd zero you get plenty of elevation for most hunting. I like the Bt setup basically eliminates the need for a drop chart
