Mine arrived Yesterday.

I can tell you now that the recorded image is not what you see on the display. There is a bit of image loss, clarity, sharpness etc.

Pretty happy with it thus far, only got to play around with it for a bit, pouring down with rain here and cold, decided to stay in next to the fire. Hooing to get out tonight.

Got mine a week ago and took it out on Saturday night. First impressions very good but you have to play around with it. Certain terrains prefer white hot or black hot. I found putting settings to mountain and using black hot very very crisp. Before getting the scope I doubt wether I would use it as a weapon sight, at most a bunny buster but I'm now thinking centre fire as I saw a fox at 200 yards and it was Crystal image and no doubt it was a fox. I rarely take foxes further than that with my drone but I reckon I could with XQ50. Still early days. Very good value for the money.

Very sensible attitude Sean. :thumbup:

In my experience with a 17 micron core then 35-38mm is good for rimfire ranges, 50mm rimfire and sensible centre fire and 75mm proper long range.


Cheers

What do you call proper long range Clive? I shot three last night 237-256yrds with the xd75. Would there be any benefit to a trail with a 17core and 50 lens? And how much better would your scope be past 250?
I really like pulsars pip mode but having never looked though any other rifle scopes I really can't compare. I'm half tempted with pulsars rangefinder Jobbie or the 640 but not sure on the benifits over the xd75
