It was strange.

Once the wheels get to a certain size the increased potential for resolution is not matched by the actual rangefinding ability of the scope - what's the point of being able to resolve range differences of a foot when the scope will only range to a yard and a half? In repeated rangefinding efforts on one target the large differences in where the wheels stop also fool users into thinking they have a problem, though the real world range difference might only be a yard or two. I'm sure super-large wheels induce uncertainty in rangefinding rather than solving any problem.

It's like having a speedo in your car which uses feet per hour insted of miles!

Add to this that they are fragile and often have to be removed to allow the gun to be put in the bag and there is just no point!
