    FT :)

    They do a nice 1-10x24, but i think a £2k scope for HFT is a bit of a push :D

    They've opened up their range a bit, there's a 35-55x52 now that comes down to 10yds... only a benchrest dot available as standard, but they could perhaps put a duplex in like they are for me.

    I had heard that they don't paralax down to a usable range but that clearly can't be right then.:confused:
    In your view, better than the S&B Ãœbberscope?

    I'll tell you when I've looked through it! :D

    The BR Indoor comes down to 10yds... and I know the long range states 50yds, but that comes down to 25yds... so i'm hoping it will be a tad less... the custom shops say something like 10yds, and they come down to 8.

    Just emailing Gary to see if we have a delivery date in... not holding my breath, he said 6-8 weeks...

    We spoke briefly on the phone about scopes, he mentioned they've had fun and games with down magging on some scopes at 1000yds and seeing POI shift of a few inches... but he's happy to do it with the March :D

    That's the spirit... don't give in, no matter what they say :D

    I can't keep ahead of the rising tide in both my regions either... such is the game that if your not fully on it, there's someone there who will happily blast past and push you clean off.
