    I was first introduced to this scope at ShotShow and was very intrigued. I spoke with several salesmen and decided to give it a try for my Kimber 300 WSM and I have never been more pleased with how it worked out.
    I am shooting better groups now then with top name optics (keyhole rounds) all the way to 1000 yards. I’m shooting hand reloaded rounds and my rifle shoots like a dream now.
    I have no worries now taking disabled veterans out on hunts with this rifle because it has been tried and trusted. I harvested my OTC Idaho Bull Elk @ 487 yards and 23mph crosswinds with 1 shot he didn’t make it 15 yards down the hill in timber.
    Shepherd Optics went above and beyond helping me out with our organization so Thank you very much from Freedom Hunters.

    I’ve been using Shepherd scopes for about 33 years now, and haven’t had one fail me under any conditions. I have used them to shoot extensively from 100 to 800 yards, and even out to 1,000 yards at targets. If I do my job, they consistently do theirs. I have three 3 to 10 scopes mounted on two 30-06’s and one 35 Whelen and have shot about 45 or 50 whitetails with them, and I have one PE1 and a V1 mounted on two 300 Winchester Magnums. The work quite well for shooting at distance. I would recommend Shepherd scopes to any serious hunter or anyone who is shooting long distances. The aim points work very well if one matches the ammunition and bullet co-efficient to the scope, and pretty well when one doesn’t. I’ve killed deer with the first shot with the .35 easily out to about 500 yards (or a little more). This scope makes long range shots much easier.
    My first Shepherd was a Shootist, which I bought in 1986. I have it mounted on a 1903 A3 30-06 and can dial it in for easy hits out to 600 yards and beyond. Shepherd referbished it in about 2006. It cost me nothing to have it done. Their scope is good and so is their word.
