After the whole SS 5x20 debacle I switched scopes to the NF brand. Looking at the 2x10 the 3x15 and the 5x20 I figured the 3x15 would work out best for me.

So I mounted the 3x15 on my LMT and headed to the range. I ran out of targets and started shooting the business card logo at the top right of the target. Wind was gusting all directions to maybe 15mph. The scope is clear and crisp to my eyes and the illumination, once dial to my prefs, is a nice feature to have.

I did have one snafu with the scope when I did not realize they dont center the reticle at the factory. It was all the way to the bottom (12 moa down) which required me to crank forever to get on paper.

Bottom line is I like the scope and cannot wait to take it to the desert and shoot 1k steel.

Nice pickup! F1? I'm curious about the SS HD debacle too. They're a trememdous value if you got in on the $1K price.

P.S. It's refereshing to see someone rock a mount other than Larue. Brownie points there. :D

Do you mean the backorder for the SS5-20?
