I am looking for a spotting scope with a mil-based FFP reticle, and this one seems to do everything I need at a fairly moderate price. Does anyone have experience with this specific spotting scope, or does anyone own it and can comment on its price/performance, or any possibly not so obvious pros and cons to consider?
Comparisons with other similar scopes are also welcome.

My 1000yd range has an older Leopold with a reticle. Great spotter with a mill based crosshair that worked well for spotters to call out firing corrections if they caught splash. It was an older unit and I don't believe they still make the model we used but I do know Leo has reticle spotters in their current product line. Don't know how the new ones function though..

I have "Sightmark Latitude 20-60x80 XD" in mind. I've heard people say it was pretty good out to a mile at around 40X, but I need to see it for myself when any one bring it to the range. Until then, it's what he said she said thing.

I can't seem to find a copy of the "Sightmark Latitude 20-60x80 XD" reticle. Maybe I'm getting thick in my old age.. Hoping it's a mil radian based reticle.

As far as scopes go I have to say I have not been disappointed with primary arms.. not quite as good of warranty as vortex but quality, clarity are on par and i have to say the click are more defined along with the zero stop i think definitely puts them as a legit competitor. From what ive been able to read(not 100%verified) they are made by the same Japanese company that make vortex

Ted that’s a spotting scope. It’s nice to have a reticle to call out corrections if spotting for someone. Reticle can be used for ranging game to if you can do a little math in your head..

Update: I have decided to give it a try and have ordered a Cronus Tactical in black. It's not in stock, so it will take a while until delivery, but as soon as I have, I'll let you folks know what it's like. Probably do a little review or so...

Let us know how you like it. I definitely need a spotting scope. My dad was my range partner and since he died I really dont have any way to call my shots . I can see them through my scope but I would much rather have something that is stationary and 60x magnification

x2. It was a ah ha moment the see how functional the reticle was at the range and quite surprising how few spotting scopes had a reticle on a FFP unit even though I was looking thru an older unit. From my perspective, a ranging reticle on a SFP is a waste of space. Definitely looking for a tough product report on that scope that stretches its legs to at lease 1K yds..

Correct me if im wrong but I think ranging in sfp is alot more complex, usually they are only able to do so at a specific magnification( i think most are set for max magnification for ranging)and if it does it at all magnification it either takes alot of math or a chart that gives the units at each magnification?
