Howdy, New member here. I enjoy firearms, but never been very serious about it. I own an SKS, a Mosin, a Marlin 795 .22LR and a few shotties. I just picked an MVP 5.56mm Varmint combo a few days ago. Grey laminate/beavertail stock. Caldwell bipod and Deadringer 4-16x50AOE scope. The barrel is not extremely well centered in the stock, but unless I notice something bigger, I won't hold a grudge. I'm not a firearms expert by any means, and I chose 5.56mm/.223 for cheaper ammo cost and possible varmint hunting down the road. I like the compatibility with AR-style mags and NATO chambering. Never heard of Deadringer optics before, I was expecting a Barska. Deadringer made (or imported lol) a few scopes that are barely reviewed online, and they are more known for "truglo" type of bow/shotguns quick acquisition sights. I'm not saying my Deadringer is better, but it has illuminated reticle, some form of locking turret rings, 1/8 MOA clicks, etc. It looks like its got more features for adjustment. It's no VORTEX for sure. They are not listing my DR 47914-16 x 50 scope on their North American page. I found it on the turk catalogue. I bet they are a turkish manufacturer. MODEL: 4-16 50 FIELD OF VIEW: 4°-1.16° EXIT PUPIL: 8.1-4.1MM EYE RELIEF INCH /MM: 4.02-3.03/102-77 CLICK VALUE: 1/8 MOA @100YDS LENGTH INCH /MM: 14.96/380 TUBE DIAMETER: 25.4MM W/E TURRET STYLE: LOCKABLE RETICLE: GLASS ETCHED RETICLE ILLUMINATION: RED ILLUMINATION IN THE CENTER COATING: FULLY MULTI-COATED GREEN I will read on here, learn from your experiences and report. I just zeroed it at 25 yards at this point, learning as I go. I shot some Hornady steel match and some Prvi Partizan (PPU) 55 grains with it...which might be me range rounds. My goal is to become proficient at 300 yards, an again maybe going coyote hunting if I find a partner down the road.
