After the match on Saturday, went to work mounting this scope.   54 moa elevation is as advertised.   Eye relief is more like 4.5".  It doesnt change.  Picture is extremely quick to find, just weld your cheek and your ready to go. No fishing around for it, its right there waiting for ya.  After 4 rounds to find the target, the rifle shoots 1 hole at 100yds.  This rifle produced this accuracy before and after the install of the Nikko Diamond Sportsman.   After 20 rounds, dont think we have any POI shifting problems either. 
  I dont think for a minute this thing is a lemon.  If it has any problems the warranty "will" handle it. I did verify this before it was mounted.

   Pictures are the only way for this scope to be judged without seeing one in person. I will do my best to get them in here.  Optical clarity, there are a few 12-42 and fixed 45x shooters that are more than impressed.  I should have used this scope in my match Saturday for sure, next time.

cdog, come back for the pictures.   I will do a series from 100 to 300 and then out to 600 yards.

    Am I missing anything?

cdog, sorry Im so late.  You have to drag me off the range since I mounted this scope.  I have been shooting the bones out of this rifle scope combo.  Pictures, yes I will take some at the range tomorrow and try and post them here.

   How are you doing with your purchase?  Or are you waiting on these pictures?

Picture really doesnt do this scope any justice.  Camera was hand held  with about 4" of relief.Temp was already 89* and the air was boiling already.  About  9;30 AM.   Scope set at 50X  and the distance was 300yds.  I dont know how many lenses I was looking through, so I cant offer any mechanical excuses.   Bullet holes on top 2 targets, could have backed down on power to clear things up I guess.  



    My computer skills arent the best , had to manually crop this pic so its a bit out of shape.

Cdog, I just wish I could have taken the pics on a cooler and dryer day.  Bullet holes and scoring rings have way more definition than what you see in the pics.  And yes, I could have backed down to 40X or even 30X or maybe 45 or 35 or????   So many choices!   Or maybe I could have focused more on the target instead of them little things behind it.

           Well there you have it.

(I'll post here instead of in the Nikko Sterling thread that 338LapuaSlap started in the Rifle Scopes section)
 
Nikko Sterling is in the same boat as Tasco. Their bottom end scopes are junk but their top end stuff is "Made In Japan" and from what i've seen people use, their pretty good...I wouldn't say that their top end is better than (or the same as) a Leupold VX-3, Weaver Grand Slam or Bushnell Elite 3200/4200 series tho.
