I saw that thread on 6mmBR forum.

Perhaps, I should contact that company and see if they want to lend me a scope for testing.

+1.

Ilya: I believe that I have an old Hakko Target, rebranded Tasco Custom Shop, from the late 1990s. It is a big long heavy thing, which I bought new at the time and used twice at the range (I was impressed by how clear it was at high mags). I then proceeded to put it away and never got it out again (obviously you can't hunt with it). I will dig it out this weekend or next and see what I can find out.

Tasco Custom Shop 8-40x56

I believe that this old Tasco Custom Shop, 8-40x56, circa 1998 or so, is a Hakko. I looked for any mention of Hakko in the doc or on the scope itself - no luck. But I remember that, at the time, I had assumed it was made by Hakko. It is a very decent target scope for the time - more light than anything else I had, big and heavy, slightly mushy but functional mechanicals.
It is next to a Browning Silver shotgun for scale - I grabbed the first thing I could find next to me...

My buddy has one of those Tasko Custom Shop 8-40x. He thought it was considered a super sniper before SWFA took over. They are big. I looked through it once and I remember it being very clear. He used to have it on a 50 BMG.
