You will be impressed with the glass for the money.

Be aware taht at low power, and FFP reticule is very small and can be difficult to interpret.

I prefer FFP only at long ranges and when ranging with the reticule.  Also know that ranging well is a very perishable skill - do it allot if you want to do it well.

If you have not looked through FFP, I recommend you do before you purchase - whether IOR or someone else's.
