Hi everyone,

Finally got a Leupold Mark4 8.5-25x50 illum TMR for my RRA Varmint A4.
Is there any advantage of a $145(!) ARD over a $28   4" sunshade?
Had a sunshade on my Rem 700 and the varmints never shot back. 

Thanks

The sun shade is much better at doing what you want it to do, which is reduce glare/flare.  The ARDs will reduce the light transmission of your scope, sometimes very noticeably.  The only use for one is to keep then lens from reflecting, giving your position away.

Sounds like I could conceivably use both.
The sunshade for glare/flare reduction, and the ARD for concealing my position.
I guess I was mistaken in thinking they were doing the same job.
Thanks for schoolin' me.
