    Zeiss LRP S3 4-25 vs MARCH 4.5-28

    I suspect you are responding to me. I probably led you astray thinking that I was using my March-FX 4.5-28X52 HM on my F-TR match rifle for 1000-yard competition. In fact, I was talking about two different March riflescopes. The one on my F-TR match rifle is a March-X 10-60X56 HM which I run...

    Best scope is best for 1000 yard

    I am an F-class shooter (boo, hiss) and I spend most of my time shooting in 1000-yard competitions. The target at 1000 yards is 6 feet wide, but the X-ring is 5 inches. What are your requirements? What kind of precision do you require, in other words, how big is your target? Also, do you...

    Zeiss LRP S3 4-25 vs MARCH 4.5-28

    Wow, what a firestorm. Sorry for the delay in coming back; work is a bear. What ILya said about deducing the thickness of the wall by only looking at the adjustment range being unadulterated nonsense is very correct. But I was correct; the Zeiss has a 2mm thick wall. The usual wall thickness...

    Zeiss LRP S3 4-25 vs MARCH 4.5-28

    Hold the phone, no need to sacrifice an S3. The information is at their website. It says up to 3mm thickness. "Up to" us not the same as "is".

    Zeiss LRP S3 4-25 vs MARCH 4.5-28

    Fair enough. Send me one and I'll cut it open and measure it. I have all the equipment needed for that.

    Zeiss LRP S3 4-25 vs MARCH 4.5-28

    Allow me to point out two features that may not be readily apparent. The S3 has a low end of 4X with an FOV of 28.5 feet at 100 yards. The March has a low end at 4.5X but even at that higher magnification, it has a wider FOV at 29.1 feet at 100 yards compared to the Zeiss. This increased FOV...

    Rifle Scopes March 1.5-15x42 inquiry

    Well done, BTW. I also contacted them yesterday and received a similar response this morning. This is great news and id history is any indicator, I would check their website every once in a while.

    Rifle Scopes March 1.5-15x42 inquiry

    I believe, and I'm happy to be corrected, that this is because it uses reticles that already exist and were based on 10X. Indeed, the reticle in my March 1.5-15X42 is the MTR-5 which is the same one I have in my March-X 10-60X56 HM. The NRA thing that @Glassaholic mentions is with respect to...

    Rifle Scopes New March FFP 5-42x56 High Master FML-TR1 preliminary review

    At 50X, my FOV is one full target and 2/3 of the target on either side. Your video looks to be at about 20X and in no way would compare to the 10-60X56 HM at 50X. You need to compare at the same magnification, in the same conditions, at the same time.

    I live in South Texas, in the Houston area. The capital of mirage.

    Rifle Scopes New March FFP 5-42x56 High Master FML-TR1 preliminary review

    @rnlzkbrs points to a good article at the Deon website. I would urge you to read it, maybe even a few times. I'm an F-class shooter (boo, hiss) and one the challenges of that discipline is that which is incorrectly, but colloquially referred to as "mirage". The article explains how ED and...

    Rifle Scopes March 1.5-15x42 inquiry

    I would suggest you contact March and tell them what you just said here. Tell them you think an FFP version of this design would be a good idea. You can leave a message at their website under About Us -> Contact Us. They do respond fairly quickly. https://marchscopes.com/about-us/ The March...

    SCOPE for an AR with a 16 inch barrel (5.56)

    I disagree: A larger tube is a 3-way switch: 1- Larger internal lenses OR 2- more adjustment OR thicker tube wall. It's not a combination of 2 or more of those, we are talking minuscule here. The erector tube is usually pretty standard in size, around 19mm OD. I still say that the...

    SCOPE for an AR with a 16 inch barrel (5.56)

    When I see someone crediting the bigger main tube for increased brightness, I get confused. I just don't understand how that's even possible for riflescope like these, given that the EP5 has 32MIL of elevation adjustment range compared to the 20MIL of elevation for the PST Gen2. On the other...

    Kowa 883 Opinions?

    I'll just put this out there; if you're buying a spotting scope based on eye relief, you're doing it wrong. Spotting scopes are not riflescopes. The goal of a spotting scope is to present you with the widest, most perfect image, and for that the designers don't factor in eye relief. That...
