Have any of you guys heard anything about these scopes?
http://www.kalinkaoptics.com/cgi-bin/ko ... k=mainpage
they got a good review on another board.
http://savageshooters.com/Reviews/Kalin ... Veber.html

Any help is appreciated, I am looking for an inexpensive scope to get me started on the savage 10fp in .308 I just ordered. I don't plan on shooting past 600 yards , do I need a 20 moa base to do this?
The other scope I am thinking about is the mueller Eraticator.

I am familiar with mueller scopes (there is a review on the main page.) But am not familiar with this other brand. remember, with optics you get what you pay for.

Oh, MY! They have listed POSP reticule as Mil-dot! <*** Hail Mary, full of grace, help me win that stock car race (like S. King pretty much, started learning American English from his books :)) ***> Where are those DOTS, I ask? And damn, during my 4.5 years in Chechnya I have NEVER seen any PSO scope other that std 4x20...

Quite a chatterbox for a mil sniper, amnt I? :) Might sound strange, but I would not advocate buying Russian civilian-market scope until thoroughly testing one for POI consistency (200-300 rounds minimum). Had seen a lot of those scopes broken on 7.62x54R weapons due to recoil - this is their weakness. I have not seen broken Veber, but Pilad scopes are rather quick to die. E.g. I have seen 8x50 Pilad whose tube got twisted on .308 Verp' carbine (heavy objective lens+weak tube material). Yes, they are cheap, but you definitely could get better.

One last word - if you choose to buy Veber, buy some European or US-made mounts, if possible. Russian 2-piece mounts is not a thing to be discussed in moderated forum :(
