    So a Bushnell normal BIG size scope with a ACOGish retical for it. well for varmet hunters or poor shooter makes sense.

  • Clint Notestine

    ive got a scope like this on a couple of my range/beater ar-s and they seem to work well. Plus if it does get f’d up i dont really care.

  • BillyBadfish

    I wonder what weight of bullets the scopes are calibrated for.

    Enough with the BDC please. It’s a barely useful crutch for people who can’t put the thought into the vastly superior miliradian system.

    Enough MOA and enough BDC that “generalize” all the variables you actually do need to know to shoot long range. Stop making garbage please! Big boys can handle “more complicated” equipment.
