I've never actualy tried to use it as an FT scope, but have no reason to believe it wouldn't be excellent

Nightforce NXS 12-42x56. Bought 2nd hand for 1000 already re-aparallaxed with 50@ adapter. HUGE gaps between longest distances, but runs out of parallax at 27 yds (down to about 24 yds with mag wound down), and waits until just under 17 yds to come back in on the CFA. Closest distance at full mag is 11yds. NP-1RR ret.

Leupold V111 6.5-20 Prem Ret boosted to 18-40, bought 2nd hand for 325. Needs a CFA for less than 25yds and has a dead spot down to 17.5 yds. Multi-line ret means you can choose between dialing and aiming off. The ret is in the 1st FP, so the aim points stay correct no matter what the mag is.

Bushnell Elite 4200 8-32x44. 2nd hand 250. Cracking optics, scope would be better for a mil-dot reticle for extra windage marks. 15/15 ret

Bushnell Elite 6500 4.5-30x50. 2nd hand for 485. Needs a CFA below 25yds but ony has about 3 yd dead spot. Cracking optics, and surprising large gaps for such a (realtively) small mag.

Leupold EFR 14.5-35x40
Reticle Number 5F. originally 6.5-20x40 boosted by Premier Reticles.
Supplied by Nick Jenkins.....Link Arms
Nice scope still got it, range finds excellently,unfortunately its Point Of Impact changes due to temperature change.
Even with a temp indicator it is very difficult to find the correct aim point of the several marked on the scope.
Initially I thought the variation was due to the range finding of the scope,it wasn't.Some people at the club have the scope that doesn't range well but have a stable POI.
Ithink Nick tweeked his but have been unable to talk to him about it.Maybe 'Premier Reticles' have a way to fix it ,I certainly would be interested in considering it,( as the ladder reticle customised for me) when it works works very well.
No dialling in or fiddling with the turrets.
You had the option of choice of high sniper style turrets or impact drop .Price in 1991 with Butler Creek covers 543.00

One of two done Bill, Jenky usued to use one.
Otherwise known as the genuine Mark 4 20 mag before boosting along with the 10 and 16 mag, which set the standard for US military for decades. Some depts still use them, says it all.

Hi Rob...only just found this thread thanks to the South African forum - airrifle.co.za...

Can you not put this as a 'sticky' under the category "Knowledge" with a new Folder category called "Scopes" ?

... from the confusing: " The Chat > Hunter / Field / Paper Target Chat > Ok, what scopes do people use for FT?" ....
