Took me just 2 rounds to zero prone @ 100 after boresighting off my neighbor's garage roof peak. Easiest scope in that regard that I've used, including the PH 3-15X50. Eye relief is great. So I took my other 8 rounds I had left for this rifle and went over to the 300 yard range. It had rained all morning so I was hoping there would be a nice puddle under the gongs. Here's my little video. I edited it down so you don't have to watch the paint dry, but left misses in there. This is an awesome scope, considering first time out with it and I ran the 300 yards back to the benches after hitting record and started firing 72 seconds later. All shots were taken in under 3 minutes.

Sweet! The "know your limitations" gongs are cool. And the effect is multiplied with the water.

I have nothing but good great things to say about this scope. I felt kind of half-a**ed after not being out for a while and not exercising hard for nearly two weeks due to a nasty cold. Maybe I should have put a couple more rounds on the 100 yard target, but I felt confident enough in it to just fire one to get on paper and one to correct. I've gotta get my reloading equipment set up again so I can get some more rounds loaded up and spend more time with this baby.

The problem I have with exercising is finding somebody big enough to chase me...Bucky

Nice Jon.  And a grazed 2" gong is a hit in my book.

Excellent

That looks like a hoot, good to hear about the fast zero, great shooting all things considered.

What rifle were you using? That's cool, hitting a 2" plate at 300yds.
 
Was that you filming in the pits in one of the other vids?

I had the .308 5R out, shooting 165 gr. Accubonds. I set up my camera about 20 feet away on a tripod, then zoomed in a little...didn't want to get it wet. What I found surprising was that the camera audio doesn't really pick up the thunk of hitting the gongs. At least back 300 yards from them the sound reverberates pretty good.
