Has anyone got any experiences on the fairly new Kahles K418 and K624 models?
It looks they feature a very Leupold TMR like reticle (Kahles MIL 1). 0.5 mil mark spread, reticle intersection is open. Unlike TMR, MIL 1 is mil accurate at 10x magnification. TT models feature tactical turrets with 1/8 MOA clicks.

I´ve been considering Leupold Mark4 6.5-20x or 8.5-25x with TMR reticle but here in Finland K 418 costs about the same as Mark 4 4.5-14x without illumination. I´d presume Kahles has better glass than Leupold.

I can't comment on the scopes themselves, but since you're in Finland, you may be able to count on better customer support than North American customers. Kahles is basically gone from the U.S. market. From what I've read, the glass will be better. 1/8 MOA clicks sound a little too fine, but perhaps that will work for the type of shooting you have in mind.

I intend to use the reticle for taking holdover so the fine clicks are not an issue for me. I would have preferred mil-clicks anyway :)
