Summary: I've had a great shooting experience with this Nikon scope. The BDC reticle is a great addition that makes long distance shots simple, even at distances you haven't zeroed for. The eye relief is very generous and the variable magnification makes it useful in a variety of scenarios. This is what I take out when I go hunting.
Summary: I acquired a new Ruger Gunsite Scout 308 rifle and wanted a good mid-range scope. My other rifles are scoped with Leupolds but I wanted to try something different and liked the BDC reticle. This scope is very clear and bright and I like the controls very much as compared to my other scopes. It also seems to be a little more substantial than my 3-9x40 Leupolds. I zeroed at 100 yards and have shot it out to 300 yards and the BDC reticle was right on.
Summary: I mounted the scope on a 30-06 at home and made sure to get everything squared using the old bore sight technique. I used a gun stand to get everything set up. I made sure to shim the scope to get it squared instead of using the windage or elevation on the scope. If you have a scope mount that has windage adjustment this is even better. I went to the shooting range and shot the 100 yd target.
Summary: We got this scope for my dad for his 300 Win Mag. He's been through 2 boxes of shells so far, and it's stayed true. It's very clear and looks nice on the gun. I would definitely recommend this scope to anyone who wanted a good scope.
