I have had a Helia 2 (2.3-7x) in inverted Redfield extension mounts on my Sako 338 for 30 years.

Having reticle movement, it had to be carefully mounted (by a gunsmith) to keep the crosswires in the centre, and I expect your Helia 1 would have the same setup. But all scopes should be mounted that way to prevent parallax, anyway, and because reticle movement does not have the image-movement field stop, you should get a bigger field of view and better blending of the fields (ie a finer separation between what you can see through the scope and the world outside).

My Khales has very stiff adjustments but they have withstood hundreds of heavy rounds without problem. The only time I've ever had to rezero it was after I slipped down a 'dry' waterfall and used the rifle and scope as a brake. I have heard of a guy who shook the reticle out of one after mounting it on an ultra-light 9.3x62, however.

After 20 years, either deer blood enzymes or aggressive lens cleaner appeared to eat into one of my scope's rubber seals just before it was caught in a storm. Water got in fogged it up. Finding no endorsed repairers in this country, I sent the scope back to Austria to be refurbished. That trip cost $540 but restored the scope to its old reliability and I expect it will see me out.

Good luck with yours!
