4.5–29x56 $1,800 1st plane MOA ret­i­cle

This sopho­more ef­fort is a rock­solid 34mm pre­ci­sion scope that checks al­most all the boxes. Good glass: check. Pos­i­tive con­trols: check. Use­ful il­lu­mi­na­tion: check. Sim­ple and strong zero-stop: check. Hand­some coy­ote-brown fin­ish: check. Our two crit­i­cisms: While the con­trols are solid, they could use a touch more pos­i­tiv­ity to en­sure there’s no over­run dur­ing com­pe­ti­tion. And the Christ­mas-tree MOA ret­i­cle (a mil-based ret­i­cle is also avail­able) could use a few bold ref­er­ences to solve a prob­lem we en­coun­tered—get­ting lost in a bl­iz­zard of windage dots at longer ranges.
