Default Acog TA11H-308 Review

I could not find any review of this scope before my purchase so here is my own review after taking it to the range. I mounted the Acog TA11H-308 on my LMT 308 and headed for the range.

After sighting in at 50yds I moved to 100 yds and fine tuned the rifle/scope alignment. Getting the scope dead on at 100yds I moved the body target out to 200yds. I then proceeded to hammer 50 rds into the body of the target after which I finished off with 5rds into the head. Then I had my buddy shoot 5rds into the head. I used a spotting scope in between to mentally mark the 1st 5rds I had shot to the head. The 5rd group I shot in the head (circled) measured 1.15". Not bad for a horseshoe-dot tritium scope. With the PWS brake I could watch my hits at 200 yds. Pretty awesome drilling the target and hitting it every time with ease.

Please note I was aiming at the red circle to see how much bullet drop I was getting at 200. I essentially put the scopes red dot on the targets red dot. The scope has hold over ticks that I will try at Angeles shooting range next weekend on steel out to 600yds.

Overall I am really happy with the scope and the optics are very clear. The optics clarity remind me of Zeiss binoculars.

One last point I need to mention. I inquired in several posts if this scope would be good for a shooter with Astigmatism and everyone said it would not and the scope was for "young eyes only". I guess the "no-go" advice is not true at least for this model of the Acog.

And finally I must mention Scott at Libertyoptics.com for his help with the purchase. I had numerous questions and Scott answered all of them. I placed the order and Scott shipped same day. He is a great guy and runs a great company in the awesome state of Montana.

Some pictures......


Its difficult to see but there is a red chevron post on top of the vertical reticle that can be used for precise aiming.
Also the horizontal lines at 4-5-6-7-800 yards are the width of a two legged target allowing easy ranging and holdover.
