I put this scope on a Remington 700 Sendero 25-06. The optics on Burris scopes are, in my opinion, better than any other American-made scope and this one didn't disappoint me. It is every bit as clear as the Zeiss scope I have on my old 30-06. The low-light useability of this scope has to be seen to be fully appreciated. I have hunted hogs at night with a half moon (legal where I live) and have not had any problem making head shots at 100-125 yards. In daylight, I regularly practice out to 500 yards and again, the scope makes it look easy. With the 115gr. boat-tail bullets I use in this rifle, the 200-yard sight-in makes a good match. The graduated stadia lines on the scope are close enough out to 600 yards to allow me to use a direct hold at the appropriate line when set at 9 power. Click adjustments are crisp and precise as well as repeatable. Overall, this is one of the best values on the scope market today. The optics are on par with the high-dollar European models at a fraction of the price. I highly recommend it.
