  1. I dont think thats the same advert BD,that does read as though its a one off scope with a fault been sold cheap.Perhaps someone from opticswarehouse might chime in to clear this up?
  2. Cheers Paulc.Im fairly certain they were advertising scopes by IOR that had dust specs visible at a lower price that their "civilian quality"counterparts.Have looked on the interweb to find the advert again but nothings coming up on the old googlefoo.
  3. I could swear i read an advert for a military grade scope,one that had more dust particles or something compared to its civilian spec counterpart.Sure it was IOR too.But then again my vitamin d levels have been very low.🤕
  4. If i'm not mistaken dont some manufacturers sell "military grade" scopes to the public which are same spec as normal quality scopes but with a chance of more internal contamination?Im sure ive seen IOR advertise along these lines.However i am 46 so i may have imagined this.Funny things happen north of 45.

    Recommend a: Digital Powder Dispenser

    I still have the original lyman dps.Must be 10 years old and still going strong.I wouldnt trust it to dispense every load spot on though so if i want to dispense 45 grains i will punch in 44.8 and trickle up the rest.Works for me.

    Glass wearers

    I have just been for an eye test and have been told i need glasses to read with,which i was expecting .My distance vision is very good still.Thankfully.Now my question is will this have an affect on my abillity to get a good focus on the reticle against the target? Ive been finding it harder recently to get the parralax pin sharp on any of my scopes. Paul

    Glass wearers

    Thanks for the replies guys.Id rather shoot without glasses but it looks more likely that i will need to try a pair in the near future.

    Glass wearers

    Yep.looking like it.

    Glass wearers

    Ive spent time fiddleing with the eye piece and parralax and still find it hard to get a clear ,in focus,reticle against the target.This is on four different scopes.I think i need to accept that glasses are probably worth a try.

    Glass wearers

    I will mention it to him.The problem i seem to be having is getting everything in focus really.Either all my scopes are all of a sudden faulty or my eyes are.
  19. I'm thinking of swapping the above ior scope for something lighter,less mag as most of my shooting now dosnt demand anything as big with as much mag.Looking at a vx3 with vh ret,or the zeiss hd5 with the 800 ret perhaps,thats the kind of thing i have in mind.owned this for around 6 years ,still have the box but cannot find the paper work.I would say its fair condition,glass is clean but there are some scuffs on the exterior due to normal use.I live in wensleydale and would prefer to meet up if a deal was struck.Pm me if anyone is interested. Paul.
  20. Never got round to putting up for sale.I still have it.

    Tikka 260 T3x odd groupings

    I have a conquest hd5 which i was very unhappy with,couldnt get a clear sight picture for love nor money.Thought id bought a bad one.Reading up on the issue,as you do,i read on a nz forum where someone had the same problem which was found to be vertical split rings.I took of the warne rings and tried some old sportsmatch rings.Problem solved.Sight picture was perfect.Warne rings torquing the scope tube perhaps?

    zeroing problem

    If it is a photon then this is pretty common.Shims or adjustable mounts are the easiest ways.However i have a cz527 which was always hard to zero,usually the windage was maxed out to get a zero.i Had that rifle re barreled a few years back and the problem was sorted.Possibly the barrel wasnt cut true?Though it shot well enough.
