Practiscore still shows it open, and I have not seen any announcements saying it is cancelled, so I would say it is still on.

I'll bet you were glad to have those propane heaters today.

Well, I bought a rifle (Bergara BMR) to come play with the cool (base class) kids. But I need advice on an optic! Athlon BTR Argos Gen 2 6-24X50, FFP, APMR IR - MIL or Vortex Diamondback Tactical FFP 4-16x44 EBR-2C (MRAD) or Diamondback Tactical FFP 6-24x50 EBR-2C (MRAD)? Prices are about the same and within the $1200 MSRP base class cap. Quite a bit less with discounts and shopping around.

I'll make next months match. I'll be last place, but I'll have the most fun.

What I have learned so far even with PRS is that I rarely go above 16x. I love my Athlon Midas Tac I would say stick to Mils though less revolutions for longer shots. It was a great match my first was a great group of guys and some neat toys

The Argos and Diamondback have the features you need at bottom end of the price point. For the same $450 MSRP, there's the Arken SH-4. I may have a NIB example below MSRP with rings and throw lever if you're interested.

The first I heard of Arken was a few weeks ago, but I’m interested. I think Jim mentioned them.

I get pretty significant discounts on both Athlon and vortex scopes. To the point where wonder who actually pays MSRP.

Is your Arken mil or MOA?
