You will be hard pressed to find clearer optics anywhere near the price range of this scope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fastgn87 oculus 6-24x50
I purchased the Oculus 6-24x50 scope to put on my Savage 10 FCP-HS in .308 I was looking for a high power scope for long range shooting(600yds) and was looking at Leupold and Zeiss scopes and decided that for a 1/3 of the price the Oculus had features I was looking for along with glass that is clearer then the Nikon M308 scope I have that was twice the price. The glass is not as nice as the Leupold or Zeiss but great quality for the price. After zeroing at 100 yards I was shooting sub MOA groups. I shot 100 rounds through the gun and the scope held up great. The MIL-DOT reticle is not as nice as some other manufactures reticles but over all for the money there is a lot of value and would buy this scope again.

I just mounted this scope on my 17 HMR (6-24x50), and let me tell you I was surprised as the value of this piece. The gun counter at Bass Pro in Gurnee didn't even have these on display, we found it when searching for a mil-dot reticle. But from the glass, to the design of the box; you could immediatly tell this is a quality scope.
Nice power range, 6-24 unlike the normal 8-24. Has a knob that allows easy changing of the power, nice feature. Has parallax adjustment, and zeroing turrets which you don't normally find on scopes in this dollar range. I read one review where this feature was criticized. This is a feature! YOU are supposed to know how many turns from top (elevation) and from right (windage) your turrets are set at, so after making adjustments in the field you can quickly get back to zero. Caps are really only for people whom utilize "hold-over" technique for long range shooting because you do not want to be removing caps in the field. Most shooters will tell you dialing-in your shot is better technique, and usually provides better results. For me, zeroing caps are excellent! Once you take your shot you know exactly what you dialed in and can adjust. Using hold-over is much less precise, and I forget exactly what I held over, so it's less likely I will make a better shot on the 2nd attempt.
I have a $850 vortex on my 243, and truthfully I'm not sure how much better that scope is than this one. Is it better? Of course!! The turrets are better (tighter clicks and better zeroing), it has an illuminated reticle, and I can get it with Mil Rad turrets (unlike Oculus with 1/8" MOA only). Oculus has better zoom, and the glass is pretty much as good. The reticle is not. Vortex reticle is outstanding! The mil dot on the Oculus is too thin for my standards, but still nice to have a ranging reticle (2nd focal plane) like on my Vortex. So in truth, how much better is the Vortex compared to the Oculus? Hah! Based on my Vortex (which are known for being great scopes for the money), the Oculus should sell for $500-$550, nearly double what its selling for at Bass Pro! Can't seem to get these right now anywhere else either. I bought it because I'm using it on a rifle with really only about 200 yards of legitimate range, so using MOA turrets I didn't think mattered much (i prefer MIL RAD), but let me tell you this scope is making me rethink how important an illuminated reticle and MIL RAD turrets are, and put $500 back in my bank.

Set this scope up on a 6.8SPC AR. The reticle with a lighted dot is easy to get a very precise hold on a 100 yard target, also shows you how much you are moving. Very birght and great eye relief. But now I get to see how good the warranty is. After about 20 shots my reticle is canted about 30 degrees. At first I thought it was a problem with loose scope rings, but no, those were tight and the turrets are still level. I'll give it another shot after the warranty, but if I have the problem again, the rating will drop to 1 star.
