Hello zebra, and all you other guys searching for the perfect scope, Happy Labor Day!
Atlon Optics’ most affordable line of scopes are called Talos…I would like to challenge you to purchase one of the Athlon Argos or Talos FFP scopes and see what you are missing. You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain. Then you can give us all the answers to these questions.
Here is a link to the Athlon Talos 4-14x44mm FFP scope with true mildot reticle and turret dials,priced at a mere $299.00: http://www.midwayusa.com/product/494577/athlon-optics-talos-btr-rifle-scope-30mm-tube-4-14x-44mm-1-10-mil-first-focal-side-focus-illuminated-aplr2-mil-reticle-matte
The great advantage that FFP scopes have over SFP scopes is the fact that the reticle holdovers are 100% valid regardless of magnification … And the great advantages my Athlon Argos 6-24×50 FFP scope has over every other scope I have ever owned is that the field of view is crystal clear, all the way out to the edge of the glass, regardless of magnification. Furthermore, the etched glass reticle is very fine at all magnification settings up to 24x, so hunting out to 50 yards at say 8x or 10x would be a breeze. But you must judge for yourself … my opinion and any others can only lead you to the water, it is up to you to jump in and see for yourself, and then give us all your opinion. I hope you find what you are looking for … I have.
Best regards and joy to all, Chuck
