    As stated above, the value is second to none.

    I have an Athlon Ares BTR 4.5-27 MIL, love the thing so much I need to buy another. But this time I might have to get the Midas TAC 5-25. Great repeatable dialling. Clear glass and reasonable price.

    These are Tempting. I had a few 3000plus scopes that I have sold off because they spent too much time in the safe. But for 1200 dollars and to have something decent for the amount of "long" range shooting I do seems not soo bad!

    I have an Ares ETR and Midas Tac, and they are both awesome. Zero complaints.

    How would an Athlon ARES ETR 4.5-30x56 compare to a Bushnell Forge 4.5-27x50 ... Both in FFP and MIL? Is the price premium on the Athlon worth it, so to speak?
    You need guns to do righteous work, Ajay… for every gun is a bible, for every bullet… a sermon. And he said to them ‘God forth into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole of creation.’

    Puts the Bushnell to shame. Ffp mil/mil is the way to go. Nice reticle. Glass is much better. I would say the ETR glass is just a hair behind the vortex razor hd. The Athlon also has quite a bit more elevation range. Turrets are really nice and locking windage as well as illumination. Definitely worth the price and then some.

    Good to know, thanks. Seems like the BTR line is more comparable to the Forge. The ETR is really something else from what I'm seeing, for the price.

    I think I found my next optic.
