I am looking for a $1000 or so scope to put on my Ruger M77 Mk II Target in .223 (for varminting) and am seriously considering this scope.  Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

I could not find any comments on them here or reviews under the product http://swfa.com/Horus-8-26x50-Predator-30mm-Rifle-Scope-P42740.aspx
I do know that the reticle is way to busy for my tastes. A simpler ranging reticle from any of the other manufacturers would be worth a look.

Few .223 rifles warrant a >20X optic, in my opinion.

What varmints?  What range?

There is probably a better option, with a few details, we can help find it.


Edited for making the "greater than" sign point the right way.

I have not used one myself - but I have seen and handled a Horus reticle, and read about it.

My understanding - 2nd hand, so qualified:
(1) some competitors swear by the reticle because it allows them to engage and correct very quickly from target to target
(2) the efficiency of the reticle "dies out" around 700-800 yards because by then it becomes too hard to see the target behind the reticle as you are holding over
(3) some of the scopes Horus sells are less than perfect, for other reasons than the reticle. They have deals with 3rd string companies (Barska might be one of them? I could be wrong), as well as good brands.

My personal impressions: very busy reticle, sometimes hard to see in a dark background. I would only consider for specific competition purposes. Mo2c, I could be way off.

Thanks everyone.

To answer the Qs ... Dogging in Eastern/Central MT, I have been told in the 300 - 400 yard range.
