Thanks chaps, all useful info.
Holly, yes the fixed mag did make me wonder but I almost always shoot at 35x (even on positionals) and acquire at 50x so felt the tight FOV probably won't cause too much pain except when I have to give silly wind or the target is at a silly height and hard to find. I've not shot one for any length of time (and I can't remember if it was a 35, 40 or 45 but think it was a 40) and it was some time ago but I do recall it being brighter than my Nikko at the same magnification, is that just my aging memory showing some wishful thinking?
Good tip on the 30/30 and sidewheel, I'll bear that in mind.
I hadn't contemplated buying from the US as I thought that there were federal export restrictions? Is this incorrect on my part??
