    Things I liked:Good quality. fair price. lighted reticle. I got the 4-16 power for field target use, hunter class.
    Things I would have changed:I would add or make available the larger side wheel.
    What others should know:When I first got this scope, I had reservations because there was no large sidewheel for range finding, which is vital for Field Target even hunter class. However after one hour of sighting in on my new Marauder at 30 yards, I went to my first ever field target match, the sectional championships, which I won. The scope worked very well rangefinding even at 10 power which is what I selected to use (in hunter class you must select a power 12x or less and can not change it during the match). The numbers printed on the focus wheel were spot on. But the really nice feature was the lighted reticle. The course was in old growth forest and was pretty dark. This Hawke just lights the center dot of the crosshairs, so I was able to see the center when it was too hard to see the black crosshairs on a black target (most of the paint had been shot off the kill zone paddle leaving it a dark gray color too) and I could reference the 1st mil dot without confusion. My Leapers scopes light the entire crosshairs but I now prefer just lighting the single center dot. Before the match, I had made arrangements to send it back to Pyramyd but now they will have to just buy their own. This one is MINE!
