In case you’re wondering about the Whitetails Unlimited connection, a portion of the purchase price of every scope goes to support that organization’s conservation efforts. Two panelists said our test sample’s power ring turned too hard, which it does. The rejoinder from manufacturers is that stiff power rings will loosen up with use, whereas those that are too loose to begin with can only get worse.
