Scopes posted have 42 Mil's on the erector and 10 more on the etched reticle. If Reupold could hang,I'd simply be using them...but alas. Hint.

You can only expect so much with Chinese manufacturing.

It isn't so much the Chinese manufacturing. It is who does QA/QC. Most manufacturers build to a price point.

Rude of me,not to fuel all the very WELL founded Insecurities you gals proffer and sometimes I get to laughing so fhuqking hard,I miss one. Hint.

Now if only in "fairness",yesterday's Mail just happened to have (50) boxes in it. Hint.

How come Reupold can't say "100% Made In USA" anymore? It's a shame they are so soft and unreliable. Hint.

This is the guy who wrote earlier in the thread that he took his new AThlon to the range and when I dialed 60 clicks got 63. I said I like the scope and got a little grief over it.

Today I went back to the range and if anyone cares, I am getting 62 clicks when I dial 60. I can live with that and will just build it into my drop chart.

I had a little more time today and would shoot once and then dial the scope back-and-forth a lot and then shoot the 60 clicks.(that is the farthest apart I can shoot my groups on my target).

I shot at different magnifications and parallax settings. And even though I said I wouldn’t do it again after having bent the windage knob on a previous scope, I put out my shooting pad on some mostly packed snow and did some drops.

My shooting pad is 1 inch thick, so very different from the half inch pad used in the tests mentioned on the other forum. I skipped The 18 inch drops and shooting after every drop and just dropped it three times on the left side from 36 inches, three times on the top the scope, then three times and it’s right side.

My first shot after the drops was about 2/3 of an inch right, then the next ones were right back where they should be.

Then I repeated it, so altogether I dropped the rifle and scope 18 times. My next shot touched the previous bullet hole before the drops.

I know this isn’t scientific and I’m not doing 20 shot groups to find true centers etc. I’m just messing around. But now I really like the scope. I was worried about buying a Chinese scope but I am going to use this and just not worry about it.

I have the target if anyone wants me to take pictures and upload them.

ID, great stuff buddy.

I have 4 of them now. Never dropped one but they’ve been piled into and out of a few trucks now and slightly “dropped” and never bobbled.

I guess you pay your money and take your chances. I trust them if they are mounted up in good mounts and taken care of while mounted.

If you are not actively engaging EVERY enemy you encounter... you are allowing another to fight for you... and that is cowardice... plain and simple.

Good deal ID. If worried about it I will stick a neoprene cover over it to provide a little padding. And not drop it.

I’ve read these are piles of crap and can’t take any movement without shifting zero. Mine has been fine though. Go figure.
