I have finally spent some time in the field with the 8-40 XTR-II.
There was 6 guys out on Monday having a good time at distance. Two of the guys were from Montana.
This is the 8-40 XTR-II.
Ran a 100 rounds through my F-Open rifle yesterday with this scope. Light loaded 284 Win, with 180 Hybrids.
Got it zeroed at 100 yards, and then started working my way out.
Have you ever went to the range and realize you left your drop chart at home? (Grrr!)
Some technology on my iPhone helped me out.
I shot out to 1000 yards, but really was just trying to get used to the scope.
Really like the reticle and the turrets. I like how they marked the turrets (Excellent).
I also used the XTR-II to make wind calls for a guy shooting his 338 Lapua Improved at 2073 yards.
I shot his rifle later on at the same distance with success-different topic/different scope.
I had my wind down (shooting at that distance already) and I decided to put 10 shots at 800 yards.
Good conditions, NEO Rest, stupid accurate rifle, and a really nice scope.
Later that day I spoke with one of the guys who was with me and he was using my 8-40 to spot @ 2073 and he loved it.
Jeremy (shooting partner of the owner of the 338) decided he wanted a
5-25 XTR-II after seeing mine compared to other options he was
I will be using this scope a lot more during the 3rd week of June. Everyone who has looked through or used this scope has been impressed.
