    New Scope

    Shot the Bisley 30 target comp today. 5 degrees when arrived, scope moved 2 yards max, repeated great and went back to norm at 10 degrees. Clear, crisp, march users and old hats alike thought it was great (if you like fixed 45 and target dot). scope is100% a keeper. Anyone wana buy a prem ret Leup ?!?

    Just home and measured , 70mm. I have a longer cheek piece on its way so can then add my riser blocks too and test, but, I am pretty sure it won’t go on a turn and if it did it would be so high I sacrifice comfort and position. Nice to have something to tinker with though..

    Well i spent some time with the scope today, i’m mixed emotions. So it snaps like a snappy thing so much so that I can imagine in the depths of winter with cold hands it might take a few attempts to get the range. Its clear, bright and beautiful in the optics. However. I’ve set this up once, I need to play but on a 4” wheel all my ranges are coming in within 60mm of wheel! This is 100% fine as it repeats AMAZINGLY. But, this with the very snappy nature its a scope for good eyes and your discipline needs to be better than your shooting. To coin a phrase its no plinkers scope. Temp shift will be a lot to learn I think, might need a wiz bang duel pointer thinggy. Ref Moa and turns. 15 yards to 55 are all on one turn - ace. 10 is 2 turns and half, 12.5 is 1 and half. I need to do all yards sub 15 whith this many clicks of adjustment, i just didn’t have time today. i think the relationship will be long but not without its issues however I’m that confident my Leup has a buyer... worst case if it all goes belly up I’ll 0% a March lol.

    I don't normally adopt early so I'm working on the (hope) that my last sightron was mega so this "should" be ok, I can work with the ret that so many hate and being fixed mag there's less to go wrong in them or effect performance... I "hope" 🙂 . It snaps well and from my back garden checks is consistent so the 30 day scope out is good but I don't think 30 days will even test the scope, any scope only one winter and summer will surely give a sensible idea? Either way best or worst grand I've spent haha

    So far I am having to think more about my position but then find it ok. Don’t think it will be a sloppy lazy shooters scope

    Had a play in the garden today, only 35 yards but the scope snaps better than my 10x50 Sightron with Leup weight. I’m a fan. Side wheel on way now too from the master so I can set up and use in anger. The dot however is smaller than leup so this really will have limited appeal.

    That would be a winner in FT but I wonder worldwide what the interest would be? The closest thing to my requirements are a march 10x60 but I’m poor and in fairness I’ve not looked through one and thought wow this is worth £2.5k. If my prem ret leup was a x40 I’d not change it, my eyes need a touch more mag though than my 35x

    Ive got a x45 sightron coming tomorrow. I had a MEGA 10/50x60 but it was toooo heavy for me. If this glass is equal or better and ranging as good this for me will be ideal scope. Lets hope one of our friendly wheel makers come back to me to knock something up 😀

    worlds 2019 Entry £155 ?

    I’ve just done the maths and I think all in it will be around £900 for me (if I get in). Thats not bad I don’t think for a world championship. Means I have to save £75 a month to pay for it... few less pork pies on the shopping and I should be sorted 😎. For all of my negative opinions on certain things I think the team involved in this will go above and beyond to make the £155 worth every penny.
