This scope is the best that money can buy. The turrets on this scope are phenomenal and the standard which other scopes should be judged by. Perfectly tactile clicks, and tracking that is as perfect as it gets. You can crank on these turrets literally all day before setting them back to zero and your rifle will still be perfectly zeroed. The re-zeroing of this scope is also as easy as it gets: no tools required, just loosen the center of the cap, lift the turret, set it to zero, then tighten back down the center cap. The zero stop on these turrets in .6 MRAD below your zero, which I actually like a lot because it means you can zero at 200 yards and then dial back to 100 if you do a lot of long range shooting and want to twist your knobs just a bit less compared to if you had a 100 yard zero.
The optical clarity is as good as it gets. No tunneling, no chromatic aberration, just a crisp and clear image. The 56mm aperture means that even indoors where there is generally low light (I’ve shot this at a 100 yard indoor range that usually gives scopes with magnification above 10 trouble due to low light) you can still see just fine.
My only gripe about the scope is that the parallax knob doesn’t have any distances marked on it. It does, however, adjust through the full range in only 180* of knob turn rather than the standard 360*, so it’s quick and easy to adjust and the parallax is very forgiving (a quarter turn is 100 yards, and then for everything 300 and out you can set it at the full half turn and forget about it without any issues).
The long and short of it is, if you want the best tactical scope money can buy this is the one you’re going to purchase. Schmidt and Bender, Nightforce, Kahles, and Vortex optics are all inferior in their own ways to this scope (though they are all excellent scopes and the difference is minimal). If money is no object, just buy the Tangent Theta.
