The Uni-Dial 5-30X56 features a tool-less ballistic turret with six adjustable markers for various distances down range. Simply loosen the top screw to adjust the ballistic markers.
• The UD5-30 Ranging Reticle is a mil reticle.
• There is a hash mark to indicate every half and whole mRad subtension.
• Quarter mRad subtensions are indicated by 0.1 mRad openings/spaces.
• The fine 0.1 mRad subtensions on the left, upper and tight axes can be used for milling targets.
• The center opening above the center crosshair measures 0.25 mRad in height.
• Available in Red or Green Illumination.
• This reticle is accurate at 20X.
The (ED) Extra Low Dispersion glass allows to user to see targets at 100m clearly. Transmits light well in low light settings even w/sunshade on. When 'fine tuning' the focus at 100yds, either edges or the center 80% are very clear, but not simultaneously. When in optimum focus in the center, the edge is still decent (vice versa). 'Coarse' adjustments on elevation turret [approx. 1/2 inch (0.45 inches/ 0.125 Milliradians/1-8th Mil) per click and includes a 'Zero Stop'. Elevation turret have many different colors to dots allowing one to set multiple "zeros" for different loads. The windage turret is the typical 1/10th Mil (~0.36 inches) but it's very frustrating. Once the windage turret's 'zero' is set, user is limited to only one rotation. On (8x) power at approximately (14 -15) yards bore sighting, I saw only (5) Mils of windage adjustment when windage turret was locked into zero. Ideally it should be (2.5) Mils left & (2.5) Mils right, but my scope was (3) Mils left and (2) Mils right. The feel on both turrets should be better for a 'precision optic' but they're better than some more expensive optics that were released to market around the same time as this model.
The most frustrating thing about this 2nd Focal Plane scope, possibly marketed to budget minded Benchrest, F-Class and possibly Extreme Long Range competitors, is that the center aiming point for "bull's eye" is a 'Void'. It leaves one to have to "bracket" a target area to achieve precise accuracy at high magnification. A full cross haired section (+), a dot/circle (O) is a must for a 2nd Focal Plane Scope. I initially didn't forsee the void being an issue until I started using it at (20x). The throw lever also interferes w/bolt manipulation (20x+). Lever location & Eye Relief are issues.
For every minus this scope has there's advantages it has over others near the price point. The illumination options are plentiful. I haven't done a box test. A more generous Eye Relief (4.2+" vs. 3.75") des...
