I checked one out the other day and thought it was decent for the price. Anyone have any experiences? Sure a Leupold/Zeiss/Swarovski/Nikon/Burris(did I miss any brands there?) is better, I know I know.

I'm just looking for any hands on experience with this scope... I have 2 elite 4200's that have served me well so far.

Have never seen or handled one. But most truly wise optics guys say "You get what you pay for". The Busnell Elite are good values for sure, but I would hate to give up the flexibility of a variable scope just for mil dots. I saved up foe a Leupold 3.5-10x VariX III Tactical w/ mil dots. Although it lacks 'cool features' of their Long Range series (like a 30mm tube and side paralax adjustments), it is hundreds less and a good solid scope. Just my opinion....

Good point. I shall look at that one. I just didn't want to spend $400+...

I have one mounted on my HbarII and it is great for the price if you are shooting over 75 yds. Under 50 yds, no AO, fuzzy...if the thought comes up. With the 10x, the mils are correct and the target turrets are great.

I gave one away as a membership drive here at ARFCOMM......I almost didn't want to let it go. It was not as precise feeling as my M3LR Leupy.....but it was nice at $189. Very good way to learn the mildot system and see if an $800 Leupy is a good investment for serious social work. Ed

[url=www.natchezss.com]Natchezz Shooting Supply[/url] has them for $150.00. For that price you can not go wrong. Target turrets are stiff with no play at all and extremely repeatable, glass is clear except at under 50 yards, only 12" long, mil dots are on the money. Yeah, variable would be great, but it won't break the bank now and you could have the money saved up for the really good stuff in a little bit.

I've had one on a Rem700 .308 for about a year. Great scope for the money. I personally don't like variable power scopes and 10x is perfect for my purposes. The glass is very clear. The mil-dots are very precise. I've got scopes that cost nearly 10 times as much, but they aren't nearly 10 times as good.

About how many rounds has it survived? Thanks, I have a few .308 and a 6.5x55 gun in need of a better scope.
