Had several people PM me about which scopes I had trouble with. I'm not trying to hide anything. I had issues with the VX-6HD and a Mark 4. Not to mention several Leupold's on other rifles that I help with load development. I don't say that to bash companies, Rokslide was started to tell the...
Mainly this is a problem at a shooting range. But also on a long-range shot when a spotter is not able to get behind you. You torch off a big magnum and someone is on the side of it, oh they hear the difference hearing protection or not.
@kupper is right people will claim what they own is the best, can't blame them. I have owned my fair share of custom rifles, all had good actions. I'm personally moving all my rifles to the Defiance Ultralight. Had a few issues with pic rails coming lose and don't want to deal with it anymore...
HAHA, reading comprehension is not my thing :)

Jon is the one that convinced me to give it a try. He may get it for free but if he even thought it was questionable he would dump it in a heartbeat. That said, I want to know how it will do on some big thumpers.
Leupold sent me a Mark 5 to review. I have shied away from this brand for many years. I've had problem with several of their scopes holding zero after dialing. A good friend of mine told me I should give these Mark 5s a look. So after a few DMs back and forth with Riza the scope was sent. I will...

I want my base layer to pass moisture to the mid layer and have my midlayer dry fast. The Klamath is going to dry faster than the kiln from sweat or rain.
I ship a lot of shit so I rarely bitch about shipping prices. But back when I shot a lot of trad I remember ordering some arrows from them. I don't remember the exact price but I do remember it was ridicules and didn't place the order.
