Hi chas
What does the Hawke chart show for a 75yard zero
Cheers
Not much different from the 150yd zero really.
Zero at 75yds and 160yds, 0.5 inches high at 120-ish and 1.75 low at 200yds.

Before you ask :wave:
65 and 180 zero. 1 inch high at 130-ish and 1 inch low at 200yds.


If it doesn't work out, blame Hawke, not me. ;)

Mine has just arrived, wow what a piece of kit, obviously need to mount it and get it zeroed but it really is a seriously well made piece of kit, just had it out in the daylight and the image is seriously sharp without having to do much messing around with the focus knob, colours arent that convincing in the daylight but mine will only be used at night so that doesn't bother me to much :thumbup:

Poor daylight colour is reassuring - it means there's no IR/UV blocking filter in front of the camera.

I take it there is no daytime filter with it, like on the Drone?

No but I am curious to see what difference it would make, I might try and have a play with the DP one I managed to get for use on my N355. It does not introduce any colour to the N355 but it does sharpen up the image.

Any more feedback from new owners, is it a Drone beater?

I had it against my mates drone the other night, I thought the digiceptor was in a different league until I realised his ir torch was ancient :lol: and picked my Pbir up with it and the image was absolutely identical in my eyes, it wasn't an all night stake out it was just a quick side by side comparison, the response to IR is equally as good as the drone.
Pros;
Image quality definitely as good as the drone
IR sensitivity as good as the drone but would need abit longer to test side by side to be 100% about this
Range finder
Cant metre (is needed because the scope sits high)
Build quality,
Reticle is very fine
Field of view is absolutely massive
The 5 mode switch for different zero's and settings, very useful!
Eye relief is much better but you definitely need a cheek riser to get your head upto it
Focus, once it's set I don't think you need to change it, 40-400 yards and the image is crisp all the way
Windage adjustment on boresighting so no need to have the reticle half way across the screen.
Cons;
It's a big thing and not quite as neat and tidy as the drone but with the lens that big I don't see how you could really alter it much
Magnification, it is obviously less than the drone but the fov and the fine reticle and range finder make up for this, suits my shooting may not suit others who love long range night shooting, but this unit is more than capable of a 300 yard fox
Auto day/night mode, I would prefer the screw in filter personally, mine doesn't get used in the day at all so permanent night mode would be better for me as at dusk it was abit twitchy from one mode to the other.

That's all I can think of for now, will feed back some more when I get some more eye time through it

Good review fella just as I found it too. I think the massive field of view and rangefinder makes this a winner over the drone

I have found the battery (2xCR123) life is much better that the DP as well.

Good point!

You agree with my findings blueroll?
