Really enjoying this scope!
 
I recently mounted the rear focus SS10X on my .308 Remington 700. I took off the weaver mounts and replaced them with a 20MOA rail mount and SWFA 30mm rings.
 
Super easy (even for me) to zero and really nice big accurate turrets and click values!
 
I took it out yesterday and checked its zero after I had cleaned it and replaced the knobs to there zeros... I was dead center and a half inch low. Nice:)
 
I went out to 200yards and put up 2 balloons roughly seven inches in diameter about two feet from one another pinned to a pallet.
A little wind from behind me so they wobbled some. Five clicks UP. I got really still and waited timing the shot and both times I popped the balloon!
 
I was able to repeat this with four more times!
 
(One miss I blame on either the wind or a tiny shift in the earths gravitational pull as it relates to the position of the moon and its allignment with uranus:-P)   
 
Next I'm building a 16" swinging target disc from a 1/2" steel plate for my 300 yard attempt with the SS10X.

Once you master that you can get a board and drill small holes in it, put golf tees in the holes and then golf balls on the tees, then shoot the golf balls off the tees.

I was thinking great idea until I saw the golf ball part. I just shoot the tees themselves. Wink

I did it at 300yds in 4 rounds. First 2 to to fine tune elevation and windage, 3rd round nicked it, 4th round was a solid hit.
I also did it with a 22 single shot and a Bushnell 4x 22 scope at night in a thunderstorm with gusting winds. Shot it while it was lightening.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Ok, the part about the 22 and thunderstorm are B.S., but it sounded good.
