Yes sir!

Got one 2 seasons ago, and slapped it on a 3006 bolty. Ran some test on the tracking and found it to be satisfactory.

I will say though that the rubber ring on the ocular lens is less than optimal.

While shooting prone the rifle stock slid down off my shoulder and I got bit. Lucky my ppe caught most of it but I still got a lil cut. After checking I found the rubber rolled up easily exposing a square edge. I remedied it with some super glue and have since moved it to an AR15. Where it performs admirably, clarity is good and dials are zero reset which I enjoy. Anyways, just wanted to share and hope it helps. Thanks. Good luck!

It is the Old prostaff line (not the prostaff 5). The original buckmaster was one step up from the prostaff.

If you watch 24hourcampfire.com you can pick up used Leupold glass for well under $200. Also new VX-1's are down to $179 since they are being phased out apparently from what I've read.

I had one on my .30-06 for a while and killed a few pigs and a deer with it. The BDC worked pretty good. For the money it was a good scope but I upgraded to a Vortex. Now the Nikon is on my .223 for coyotes.

If you get the BDC reticle, the Nikon ballistics on their website is pretty good for getting you close. One thing to remember is that the different circles mean different ranges depending on what power zoom you are on.
