NRA Sport Optics Scopes from Brunton

Has anyone used rifle scopes from NRA Sport Optics (made by Brunton)? I like to get your opinions on their optical quality and their ability to hold zero or return to zero. I haven't found find any tests on these scopes on the Internet.

Also I like your opinion on their BDC reticle. It seems to make sense academically but I wonder how it fares at the range for say .22LR or big bores like 7.62X54R?

I was thinking that I might want to try their BDC reticle or if the optics are nice I would go for the 6-24X50 mil-dot scope to punch papers. I appreciate your opinions. Thanks.

All's I can tell you (if you didn't already know) is that *in general*, Brunton makes VERY high quality stuff. They are up there with Zeiss, Swarovski, Leica, etc. Hope that helps.

BDC reticels have been around a long time, they only work as an approximation of point of impact. I wouldn't pay extra for one. But if that's what you want, go for it.
