Hey there, considering purchasing one of these for plinking and and occasional hunting with my 270win. Anybody tried them please? Not many reviews on the web ( especially from NZ). Any thoughts/comments most welcomed. Thanks!

Iíve got the MD 3 - 16 x 50 on my .22 and itís grand out to about 100 meters - Iíve worked out the drop from the Mildot setting (highly inaccurate in comparison to the real deal) personally I wouldnít put a Nikko Sterling scope on anything bigger. Theyíre pretty home made - NZ Outdoors or Rod and Rifle did an article on them a couple of years ago. Canít see if theyíve improved the R&D or production to be fair. Cheap and nasty would be a fair description. But now Iíve got it humming on the .22 itís not too bad.

I'm with Radar. Not sure if I'd put a nikko sterling on a .270, just be wary if the quality would match the recoil.
Is your rifle suppressed?  I got a dpt on my ruger ultralight .270 win and it reduced recoil a bit and the noise a lot.
