    Posted: January/01/2007 at 10:02

I think I've decided on the Kahles CL 4x12. I'm new to the optic thing and I'm not too sure I understand the whole Multi zero process. Is it easy to figure out for a rookie or will I need someone more experienced to help me understand how to use my equipment properly. Should I just go with the regular CL model??

 

Thanks,

 

Jeremie

If you follow the instructions it's reasonably easy. But while you are screwing around with it the deer will have left the area.Another gimmick for product differentiation that is of questionable value in the real world where shots are presented and completed in seconds not minutes.Buy the regular one and spend what you save on ammo and targets to practice at various unknown ranges.That way you'll be ready to shoot not twirl dials.

Although I haven't purchased one yet, I believe the Multizero scopes could be very useful if you wanted to switch one really good scope to multiple rifles.  Is this thinking wrong?

No you are right, but keeping track of all the windage and elevation settings, as well as the fact that no mount really rezeros when you take it off and put it on, will have you spending more on good scotch to sooth your nerves than multiple scopes would cost. The operative rule is KISS. The Kahles on a 7 mag, 30-06 or 300 winmag will work for almost anything bigger than chucks and smaller than brown bears so why complicate your life needlessly ?

10-4 on the non-multizero CL.  Theoretically, it can be switched from rifle to rifle, but would you do that without checking zero?  If you really want to use it on more than one rifle, (a bad idea) just get the regular CL and write down the number of clicks horizontal and vertical you need to change for the different rifles.

 

Personally, if I needed scopes for two rifles, I'd buy two $400 scopes and have one for each, rather than one $800 scope for both.  You'd be better off.

The multizero feature was made for different loads (and/or different ranges) out of the same rifle .   If you use the same rifle for both deer and varmint hunting more than likely you use diiferent loads.  Or if you are out of your pet load and have to shoot factory ammo, you can have zeros for both, so when you get more loaded then all you have to do is turn the knob back to the setting.

Exellent choice,the CL is a fine scope with or without the multi-zero. The Multi-zero is simple and very benificial for many different shooting applications.

If it is within your budget get the muti-zero and take a little bit of time to learn it I am shure you will be hapy with it,if not the non-multi-zero is a great scope.

+1

 

Personally, I opted for the non-MultiZero function on my 2 CL's.  However, there is certainly a legit need for this feature but many shooters aren't aware that they "need" multizero.  The shooting public hasn't been very well educated from a marketing point of view...

Personally, I would not get the Kahles without the multi zero.  There are comparable optics for less money.  The multi zero is great for different loads (think elk/deer combo hunt with same rifle), and most long range shots should actually afford you more time to click over.
