I have searched for a real world, review of this scope,to no avail.I want a light scope to put on a walking hunting rifle. I have big $ glass on my long distance rifles (TT and Khales) but I want something compact for a packing rifle. I have an older VX-iii 2.5-8x scope I can use, but I am intrigued by this scope. I have had success with an even older VXiii 1.5-6x scope on sheep and goat at 400 to 500yds, so 5x with the fancy CDS gizmo should do the job. May be able to get one for a decent price. Good/bad idea?
