Well fellas I purchaced a ss 10x about a year a go to go a top a AR15 that realy was a head ache from the get go and in the end went its way. Leaving me with the scope that has been setting the top of my closet for the past 9 months.
A call from a old shooting buddy and his telling me that they had been shooting out to 1K yards got me to thinking so I purchaced a Sav 12vlp in .223, I dug out the handloading bench  mounted up the SS and after a brief bit of load development I had .5" groups with 55 and 69gr. loads. Shooting out to 200 was a breeze but around the yard that was my limit .
 
Armed with a ballistic profile for my loads and my shooting setup I traveled to my old friends range and just glared at that 1k target . I have had low end scopes with target turretes and was skeptical  of this scopes repeatability. Three old buddies that have been shooting for a while out here and one that competes .
My plan was to work at ranges that one would normally varmint hunt at whitch to me would be 400 yds
Well all went well to 300 yardson the 6" targets but now it was time to start rolling the MOA to the scope .
500yds bingo 700yds miss and miss some more. I was having trouble with the wind and since the target was elavated to clear a midrange rr track spotting was impossable so I started to conseed that I had reached my limit and decided to watch my buddies shoot . Having never been to the steel target at 1000yds I noticed that it was on the face of a levee where spotting the hit was easy. so I checked my chart diled in 39 moa and I was slightly hi and right  diled down 1 moa hold left 2 min , miss 1 min to left wind is varing up tp 10mph third shot , nothing, noda,  next shot     to the left.
After about 10 shots my buddy rides down to the 1k target and in addition to the 3  7mm splats there are 2 22 cal splats that we could not hear hit !Big Grin  after seeing this I forgot to check the 700yd target.
 
Well it was time to tell the I rolled it back to zero and wala , dead on at 200. My buddies are shooting night force ,Ziess and Nikon scopes whitch perform well but the ss was right there with them . The buddy with  the Nikon comented it was as clear as his was at half the price .  
 
 I am now looking at 80 gr loads to help buck the wind and shooting as much as possible .
 
Thanks SWFA for a scope  that takes care of bussiness and want break the bank.

Good shooting with that 223 wind really gets a hold of those buggers!

I have the same scope as you on a Savage. 308 always good to hear others enjoy them aswell!

Glad to hear the good report.  The SS scopes are some great tools.
