The 5-25 Z5 is NOT a long-range hunting scope. Kinda.

It makes sense - it's a 5-25 - surely that's a long-range scope! Well. Not really. You see, there is a really big gotchya with this scope.

Rifle Scope 101 – choosing your first scope

Yet again, I had a client in that had been sold the wrong setup.

A spotting scope for both sports and observation (the Swarovski STR80)

The Swarovski STR80 - phenomenal glass, and a reticle.

The Swarovski dS – Scope, rangefinder, ballistic solver.

It's the pinnacle (price wise at least) of 'smart' optics. But does the price of the Swarovski dS really equate to value? Like many things premium, it's a yes, no, yes, kinda answer.
