I received it today I am very impressed with it so far,optics are awesome on it.It bar far beats my previous Nikons and My VXIII  and id say equal to my black diamond.
It feels really sturdy and well built. Ive got to take it out later as light fades and see how it does.So far reticle looks really good ,But need to make sure it will show up in less light.
But i'm really pleased with it so far Big Smile

Congrats on the new hardware.  Yes, pictures are wanted, both of the scope and rifle and of those targets with nice little patterns.

Good luck with the new scope,you were getting so nervous when everyone was getting on board with the reliability issue.

well I got it mounted today :) I had to use high rings.Medium was a bit to close for scope cover.While there I compared it to a few other scopes.This was inside store I thought it was a little brighter and more image detail then a Leupold.Then I compared it to a elite 6500 I could really tell no difference in them But I will say  its not as bright and sharp as the Kahles
binos were  Still happy with purchase  plus even gun shop owner said it was a nice scope
