Hey everybody. I need to see if anyone out there knows about the " Millett " 10x50. It's a fixed 10 power scope with a 30mm tube. The thing I really like about it is that it has 1/3 moa's of addjustment at 100 yrds. It's .1 mill also is what some people call it. I don't know how many moa's it has or how good the glass is. Can it handle the recoil of a mag rifle. I really like my 10x42M SS. But it only has the 1/4 moa,s click value. I really want the 1/3 click value.

.1 mil is not 1/3 MOA...it's pretty close but enough difference to mess you up if you shoot out past 300-400 yards and you treat it as a value that it is not.
 
If you think about what you will realistically be doing with your rifle, you will know if the .1 mil adjustments are worth it for you.  I'm guessing it would be a waste of your time and you would be better off with the SS scope.  Your money is worth more than one nifty little feature.  It's probably most wise to have quality alone until you can afford to own quality plus cool kid features.

Yea I think it's more like . 336 or somthing like that. That addjustment is still good enough to out shoot 99% of the people on this planet. Thanks for the input. The reason being for that value is because if I 0 my rifle in at 200yrds. It will have enough clicks in it to reach 1000 to 1050yrds with one full revolution. I want to put a drop compansator on it from kentton industries.

You know those are only good for one load, one altitude, one temperature, etc.?  There have been times where the ballistic coefficient of a bullet has changed because of new tooling.  Changes to powders, changes with the velocity your rifle's barrel can produce with the same load, and other variables.
 
I think a drop compensator is better to stay at 500 yards and less unless you are in a hurried combat environment.  It is not precision from day to day, month to month.

Millett makes some good scopes for the money, and some bad also. Lately it has been luck of the draw from what I have heard. If you are notably a lucky fellow. Give it a try. If you are more like me in that department, stay away for a little while and see how they handle the QC issues.

Yea. I have to get a turret for 1000 ft above sea leavel and 8000 ft. Because that's the allitudes I'll be hunting. Every time I change turrets I'll have to rezero my 500 yrd. That's what I do on my SS. It's been workin great so far. I have enough clicks in one revolution for 825 yrds but I just told them to stop it at 800 even. That way it's not running into my zero. I have a chart for my wind and it's on my scope in 10mph marks. It tells me how many mill dots to hold over in the wind speed. If it's only 5mph I just cut everything in half and so forth. I really like the system. It works really good for me. I'm still practicing with it. I'm pretty consistent on hittinig a 2 litter bottle at 500 yrds and a milk jug at 750 even in a 15 mph wind. I try to practice as much as I can in high wind. It's a challeng and I like it. I know I'll never get a 4" target at a 1000yrds. But maybe a few milk jugs would be ok with me.

Milk jugs at 1,000 yards in any kind of wind would definitely be some thing to be proud of, even if only 50% hits.

SWFA is carrying the Horus Vision scopes now, I don't know if the Hawk might be a scope you would be interested in...the price is higher than those others scopes but the fun factor and versatility for that type of long range shooting would definitely make it worth it.
 
I guarantee second shot corrections done on the fly will be much faster!

I'll have to look that scope up then. If it's around a grand though. I have the Leapold and the Huskemaw optics in mind. The huskemaw is a 5x20-50 1st focal plan. And the leupold is a 4x16-50 1st focal plane. Both are $1050. The huskemaw has .333 click value and the leupold has .336 click value. What I want to do is put it on the new Thomson Center Endever singel shot. 28" berral. It's only an inch longer than my 24" berral on my rem 700 and weights the same.

The Horus scope is 1st focal plane as well, with .1 mil adjustments, and almost half the price.  Same thing with the SS 3-9 variable scope. 

Those other scopes don't really get the feedback of being worth over $1,000
