    I had one. Thought it was good.

    Nice reticule, metal flip up covers, and nice resettable turrets.

    The factory side wheel isn’t ideal, so would need an aftermarket one really.

    Mine wasn’t getting used, so I sold it on to fund a Falcon X50.

    Didn’t have it long enough to check for poi temp shift.

    The gap between 50 & 55 wasn’t any worse than other scopes I’ve tried. But, the supplied sidewheel isn’t very big, and has “bumps” all round the edge, which makes it very difficult to rangefind and mark it up with distances.

    A larger aftermarket wheel, and I think it would be fine.

    Bear in mind though, that you can get a big Nikko 2nd hand for cheaper than s new Hornet ED.
