I have a friend that was thinking about buying a shepherd scope,and I just wanted to know if anyone has had any experience with them. It's supposed to be a one shot zero scope and have an aiming point that stays the same through the whole power range. Fit the circle that fits the animal and shoot,it's supposed to be that simple. Looks like a real nice scope but a lot of cash.

I had one on a Rem 700 varmint in .308. It worked as advertised.
The range rings worked and the tic marks, both vertical and horizontal were repeatable when moved off and back. I always left mine set at 10x so I cant answer about that. The one shot zero thing pretty much works as long as your on the paper. I'd buy another. Mine went with the rifle in a trade. Just out of curiousity, what are they going for now? I paid $450 for mine, but that was awhile back.

I think cabela's is selling them for $575.00 or somewhere close to that. I haven't had time to get on the computer lately or I would have answered you sooner.
