Has any one else had any experience with them?
Back about 2 months ago I was setting up a new 243 Thompson Center Pro Hunter. Got a 4x16 and have found it to be an excellent deal.
Seems rugged, bright, variable objective, with the added feature of an illuminated reticle that goes red or green, 5 different light levels to boot.
I just ordered another 6x24x50 at 106.97 Including freight.
Deal or no deal?

I've looked at them at Wally World, and considered giving them a run on my .300 Win Mag. As soon as I break the Busnell Trophy thats on it, I'll give them a shot.

What is WITH all these new scopes anyhow? Center Point, Clearidge, Nitrex, Falcon, Vortex, etc. - as if there wasn't already WAY too many scopes brands already out there. But no harm I suppose.

I grabbed a Centerpoint from Wally World. The 4-16x44mm with target turrets, illuminated mil dot, adj obv, flip up covers...It's on my 30-06 and shoots just fine. Optics aren't anywhere close to Nikon or the likes but good enough. Couldn't pass on the $69 price tag. Below is a picture prior to me putting on lower rings.

Same here. $69 bucks for my Center Point. Bushnell on the shelves had already been opened, taped together and restocked so I went with Center Point.

I like the mil-dot. Got a ballistic program downloaded from Remington and a printout taped to the stock.

I notice that on the Centerpoint website, there is a Buy button that will take you to Amazon.com and my 4x16x44 scope was a lot higher than WalMart.

I picked one up about 3 months ago for my 300 Win Mag. Used it to take several deer with this year.

Well I guess it will take 300 Mag. Recoil.
On mine I can't tell if My Leopold 6.5x20 is any brighter or any better for that matter. If you figure it cost about 10% of what I paid for my Vari X 2 you could do a lot of shooting with the difference. Besides that If I drop it off my horse or the horse rolls over on it You don't loose much. Seems that over the years Quality Optics have gotten cheaper and cheaper just like pocket calculators.

The one I had wasn't so hot.
It was rather "dark" at above 14x, and during the third range visit, I was adjusting it for a different load (previously a 50gr bullet, to a 63gr bullet on a Remington M700 ADL in .22-250. The verticle adjustment detached from the reticle rendering the scope unusable. Walmart returned my money. I bought a Nikon Buckmaster and haven't looked back....... (A Leupold 4.5-14 now resides on the .22-250)
