.5 MOA = Teats on a Boar Hog to me. Looks pretty cool.

I don't know....the box it came in says it's "perishable" and you have to keep it "refirgerated". Too finicky for my tastes....

You find the .5 MOA adjustments fine enough?

Don't know, just got it. If I don't like it on the 223AI it will go on a bigger big game gun....

But if strata lines and B-plex works for folks, can't imagine an xtra .25moa being a problem...

I ran one on my 300 ultra, I regularly shot clay piegons at 6-700 yds. I thought the .5 would be a hinderance, but the smallest thing I shoot is squirrels so it was fine. I pulled some of my longest hit ever on coyotes with the leupold m3 which is also .5moa. I can honestly say I have killed song dogs at ranges of yards with a comma in them....more than once.

for a paper pounder there are better choices, for game getter....go for it.

Even if you discount the turrets, it seems like a great improvement to the overall design of the VX-II models, if only for the new power selector ring ...

I just wish it were 1/4MOA adjustments ...

AZ Native, but short term PRK
I'm wanting to pick up one of those in the "Hunter" configuration (elev turret only), but they're not out just yet dammit. Was hoping to pick one up before deer season and give it a run on my M77. For my .270, for deer, antelope, and elk, the .5 moa should do just fine.
