RedHead® Epic® Rifle Scopes
about 6 months ago i bought the epic 4,5x14x40AO for around 170$ put it on a brand new rifle chambered in 300 winmag. bore sighted went to the range shot a 3 rounds moved the scope to zero it in @ 100 let the barel cool off about 30 minutes fired 3 more shots in to a 1" group.
The next week end went back to the ranger and fire 3 rounds and all 3 were not even close my 1" group turned in to a 1foot group.
Returned that scope for another one exact same scope. redid everything and had the same results
now im on my 3rd epic in 6 months and just got home from BPS with a bushnell trophy xl 3x9x40
the only reason i gave it 2 satrs was because the store was great all 3 times i had to return the scope.

Bass Pro Shops mounted the 3-9X40 scope on my Ruger 10/22. I shoot 1 inch patterns at 50 yards and 5" patterns at one hundred yards. The scope is highly repeatable and the mounting has remained secure after 2500 rounds of .22 lr ammo.
I was very fortunate to purchase this scope on sale, and with the free mounting, I paid less than half of what the local gunsmith charges for mounting a scope.
I am going to purchase a higher adjustable magnification Redhead scope and see if I can tighten up my 100 yard pattern.

3.5 - 10 scope on a 30 30 lever action
This scope is good and clear at low light conditions. excellent on 3-7. ok on 7-9. but it is not good on 10 unless it is in the middle of the day with good light. you can really get it dialed in on about 8 with the focusing eye peice.

I bought this scope for remington 7400 in 30-06 aweek ago.After putting it on I had a hard time sighting it in. After about a dozen shots I had it pretty well lined up and the scope started getting really foggy on higher powers. I turned the power down which made it better for a few shots than it got blurry to.It will be going back.WORST scope i have ever had.
