MSR Riflescope™ 4.5-14x42mm is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not MSR only, Everything I need in a hunting scope I bought this scope for the absolue oposite gun it was designed for, and im glad i did. This is designed for a modern sporting rifle. I needed a scope for A levergun. I find MSRs shoot real flat and can make tight little groups at moderate range. My old cowboy rounds drop off much faster and are harder to shoot at moderate ranges due to the bullet drop. This scope allows you to quickly dial 16 inchs of drop in one turn of the turret. Now its designed for the 223 but my 38-55 if zero at 100 is -6 at 150 and - 13 at 200. Thats hard to estimate in the field but this scope is clearly marked 1-16 on the dial. I think i can adapt it to any leverload for 200 yard hunting. Overall quality is good, image is fine for dawn dusk hunting here in SC we get 1 hour before and after offical sun up/ down and I think the burris is better than anything in this price range. Im shooting heavy recoiling handloads and have no problem with holding or returning to zero. I could give this scope a near perfect recomendation if it were made in 1-5 x 40 or a fixed 3 power. The only other slight is the art department got a little crazy there is a lot of writing all over the scope; Burris , MSR twice and 223 twice. I found i could rub it off with nail polish remover as I wanted a more classic look. The only thing close to this scope in quality size, features and price is the Leupold CDS vx2 and I dont think it can be had for less than twice what I paid for the Burris. As for its design, I think this scope on an MSR with a Dnz freedom mount would be a fantastic light kicking, durrable hunting rig.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Performance. Very pleased with this scope so far. I compared this scope side by side along my vx-3, conquest and viper hslr. I liked the view thru my 4.5-14 MSR better than my 4-16 viper, the MSR was every bit as clear and bright in low light and was better in bright sunlight and glare conditions. The view thru the vx-3 and conquest were only minimally better for twice the price. I have this scope mounted on a boyds stocked savage axis 223 with a weaver style 20moa base. Last time I shot I had my ballistic calculator results printed out for the ammo, confirmed that it was still shooting 1" high at 100 yards. I had a 52oz "green goodness" bottle filled with water on a hill at 535 yards from the bench. I moved back 200 yards and set my sandbags on a pile of stacked timbers. I dialed the turrets 2 revolutions/ 24moa for the 69 grain bullet at 735yards and proceeded to nail it the 1st shot. Lots of luck involved I know. Proceeded to shoot more with with other ammo, had it dialed up 29.5 moa for some cheap 55gr tula managed to hit it 1 more time. Dialed it back to to 17 moa, hit a 10" round steel target 6 out of 6 times at 600 yds. I dialed scope back to zero, drove back to the bench,reset up and proceeded to shoot the same 1" high at 100. I was impressed, scope does what I want it to do.
