    I use one of these for FT, and I think its a great scope, nice clear optics, pretty good for rangefinding, and not too bad a price at around the £269 mark now I think. I think its one of the better mid price scopes, but I've seen several second hand £400 or less Diamond Sportsman Nikko's around the forums lately, and at that price they are even better value if you can up your budget slightly. If you add a large sidewheel to the Targetmaster your getting up around the £300 price tag. So in answer to your question, yes I would reccomend them if your on a budget like I was when I got mine,you won't be dissapointed, but if money is not a problem, then go for a Diamond Sportman :D

    I've got the 150mm wheel, which I think is the biggest one, and there's only about 5mm between the 50-55 marks, takes a bit of practice to get the range right, with that little to play with :)

    Gaps aren't so important, in fact I think they can be a red herring. My Walther scopes only have about 4mm, and my march has about 5. What is important is how well the scope communicates the range and how repeatable that is. Just saying that gaps aren't everything ;) But it does take time to learn a scope... some are easier than others.
