Well the nice calm morning I awoke too turned into 30-40 mph gusts...swirling every which way! So the range report is going to have to wait. I will get some pics loaded up here in a bit.


As a side note, the bad thing about not having a dedicated shooting facility(vs. miles and miles of desert) is not having a target stand capable of holding anything in a sand storm. I believe that I got real close to zero'd, but the target was flapping so much that it was very difficult to tell... Anyway enough whining! Pics up soon!

The SS F******* ROCKS! Hands down the best scope I have ever owned! (Not saying much) But really does kick ass. I have heard that the eye box gets tight at above 17x, and I went to the range looking for it, but for me at least it wasn't a problem. The reticle and diopter adjustments were very simple. The side focus started very tight, but after a few seconds of turning back and forth from stop to stop, it loosened up well. The turrets are simply the best I have ever used. Hands down, very impressed with this scope!

Nice.  Now you just need a day with less wind to go have some fun and stretch it out.

Went and shot my first comp with this scope, yesterday. The scope performed well, and did everything I told it to...I still need to work on my wind doping, and driving the rifle. The wind was really whipping, so much that a 5 mil wind hold was not enough at a 1082 yard target. The average shot was right about 700 yards, all from field improved forms of prone. This is the web site and has some really good pictures.
