Welcome to The OT!!

 

Yeah, Shepherd scopes get talked about from time to time on here.

Some like them, some don't. 

 

The biggest gripe I have with them is they have poor optics quality and are an expensive scope to boot.

I like the concept of the reticle circles of different sizes for ranging distance but there is better glass out there. The lines in the Trijicon TA01B do the same thing with shoulder size on people for a .308. Most of us that are serious hunters wind up with a laser rangefinder for determining distance and some type of a (BDC, Boone & Crocket, Balistic Plex) or Mil dot reticle that provides known hold over points.  The other way to work is to dial in the correction with target / tactical knobs in which case you can adjust for windage also, then later return to zero - thats what the pro's do if they have the time. I think I would rather have a 10x42M Super Sniper scope or a Leu VXIII 4.5-14 with B&C reticle than a Shepard.

Way too costly for what you get.
