    5-50x56mm MOA . My first impression is that the reticle is very thin .This is from resting rifle on a on a chair back and sighting on stuff around my neighborhood from inside my house so no one sees or thinks I'm a threat.

    Looking forward to hearing more about it. What I’ve read so far, it sounds like one awesome scope.

    Couple other guys posted some detailed reviews that I hole heartily second. I have other near top tear scopes and my 62 year old corrected vision can't tell them apart.

    Reticle is supposed to be thin. The scopes are designed for precision work at long range. The illumination works very well to reveal the thin reticle better. I like green in the day time (if required) and red during twilight hours.

    At the rifle range the thin reticle was no problem at all .

    Has anyone compared the glass to an Nightforce ATCAR ?

    It's close, I have both and I still think the ATACR is a little crisper. But it isn't far off

    Summer conditions here in Reno NV the mirage is heavy . Shooting at 200 yds today I had to reduce power to 20x . How do soldiers with scopes rifle wage war in summer conditions ? I guess shoot a bunch of bullets .
