Looks interesting.  I might have to give them a try.

Learned something yesterday.  Setting zero stop. If itís too tight it will move zero up.  If just screwed in enough to engage stop no poi shift.  Got just about 100 rounds through it now. Loving it.  Testing glass last night just about dark. Could see my 835 yard target at full power.  Vipers could not see it till almost lowest power.

Came a crossed this one

This is my experience too.  Tracking is perfect.  Glass is good, I like the reticle.  It is not equal to a $1200 scope but it sure is better than any $500 scope Iíve ever used.  If your looking for a target scope and canít afford $1000 bucks itís a great choice.  Itís not a hunting scope, heavy.  For <$600 to my door with good scope base and level and throw lever you wonít beat it IMO

No experience with the sh4 but Iím loving the ep5

Finally a honest review and I agree with everything he says.   Though I have tested mine on tracking and itís perfect at least to 50 Moa I tested it to.  It is not better than a $1000 scope. But you wonít find a better one new for $800.  Jmo

Nice!

Rare to see honesty in product testing instead of corporate butt kissing anymore.
