I'm writing you to give your company an evaluation on your product!.. Let me just say that between me and my wife (Ruth) we have had a whirl wind the last three years!! You see, three years ago I won an elk contest and the first prize was a custom made 30/06 rifle, topped with your LEATHERWOOD/HI-LUX UNI-DIAL SERIES.
To be honest, I'd really never heard of your company! So, I was a little skeptic at first and was looking to upgrade with another scope that I knew about, and already own! But you see, I was so excited to shoot the new gun! It had already had the barrel broken-in on the gun range and was sighted to (what they told me at the awards ceremony) at 1000 yards!
I was told, "It's a shooter!" So, I said what the heck and headed off to the gun range! My first three shots at 100 yards was what they told me it was... sub-minute of angle!! Wow... and the scope was very clear! I asked myself..."Could this be real?" So, I took my range finder and found the 500 yard mark on the range and set up my 30'' metal plate target! Three more shots at 500 yards...with a 5 inch group!
That next year, I drew an antelope tag and was lucky enough to find a Boone & Crockett buck...but he was 501 yard away. I had the confidence in the gun and your scope, so I dropped the big boy! Next was my wife's hunt where she took a Coues-Whitetail buck at 584 yards...with 7 of family and friends watching...she dropped the buck! Everybody couldn't believe it! That's the day the rifle got its neck name "Freak Nasty"! That year I also took a 3x3 desert mule deer buck at 375 yards.
Then came the most important hunt of my life...for DESERT BIGHORN SHEEP! First day...at 300 yards...my ram of a lifetime was down! The story is coming out in Trophy Hunter Magazine 2013 summer issue, where I credit your scope as some of the equipment I used! I just want to thank you for a product that I can count on every time I pull the trigger! I'm sending some of my photo's with your scope in the picture, hope you enjoy as much as I did. Thank you!
