Sorry for taking so long getting this posted. The nickel is at 100 yards and the quarter is at 250 yards.
Some people love the scope......some hate it. I think after talking to someone at a range, he doesn't like it because he's a poor judge of looking at something and putting a range to it.
You live up to your moniker. Great shooting. I have a BSA 3-12x50 on my .17 hm2 10/22, and its dead-on. It has a brighter sight picture than some of the older, high-dollar scopes I've seen/used. BTW- that scope used to be on an enfield, wich has "moderate" recoil. It has never missed a beat, even after several hundred rounds of 174 grn. MK's @2450 fps. I just wished my tasco target/varmint scope fared as well. Maybe I'm wrong, but I seem to remember a time when tasco actually made a decent scope, one that was somewhat respected in shooting/hunting circles. Am I totally off beat here, or just starting to suffer from brain erosion due to nitro fumes?
If tasco/burris refuses to give me warranty satisfaction for the scope I recently returned to them, I'll prob. end up getting a sweet .17 in the mach 2 version, and switching the older BSA to the mini, albeit w/ taller rings, or a ruger-to-weaver adapter.
