    Nice breakdown, I’ve done similar over on my own blog about the Accupoint. It really is a great all around hunting scope – and the different versions span any shooters need.

    Nice write up here. The Accupoint series has a handful of different spec models that are each optimized for different applications. The magnification you chose for here for hunting is a good one. I’ve written about how the Accupoint continues Trijicon’s tradition of putting out quality optics that deliver in the field.

    Good review. Your summary is yet another confirmation of what I had gleaned from pieceing together information from a number of posts on the Optics Talk Forum, all leading me to conclude that the Meopta Meostar 3-12-56 with illuminated #4 reticle is a really good choice for low light hunting. The big Meo working in tandem with an 8X56 Meopta Meostar B1 binocular has proven a deadly combination the last two years. The big boys that tend to come out only when the light is all but gone are now at greater risk. I too had previously considered the Trijicon. Thanks for the comparison.

      I am personally a bit torn one which one I would want to run long term.

      The Meopta is a bit better glass but is also heavier and lacks any sort of holdover points. Really depends on what is more important to you.

      I like being able to confidently shoot out to 500 yards as I know my rifle is very capable of it. I like the ability to dial in my corrections for real long range but for hunting when I need to be able to quickly take a shot even a standard mil dot reticle is extremely beneficial. In fact, I prefer one to some of the ones being put out that have too much going on. The US Marines knew what they were doing.

      In the end, it’s really a matter of priorities.

    yep.. seen that a lot..
    The Bushnell and Weaver Tacticals and hell, even my USO is too bright for actual hunting use.

    Good stuff Charles. I have always been impressed with accupoint at dusk/ dawn. I did pick up an illuminated Bushnell tactical for my bolt gun, but forget using that at dusk. So much light bleed it would be useless.
