The Firearms Blog Report On The Hi-Lux Optics New CMR-AK762 Tactical Scope

Here's an excerpt from a great review written by Timothy Yan...

"The CMR-AK762’s zeroing procedure is a bit different than the standard CMR’s because of the ballistic difference. The center 1 MOA dot inside of the double-horseshoes needs to be zero at 200 meters or yards for the rest of the BDCs to work. If a 200m range is not available, use the small “V” on top the smaller horseshoe for a 100m zero. For subsonic 300 Blackout ammo, I used the MIL hash marks in the CMR-AK762’s reticle. In general, the subsonic 300 Blackout rounds drop 3-5 MILs (10.8 in to 18 in) at 100 meters range depended on the velocity, ballistic co-efficiency and the bullet weight. I found the vertical strata line has enough holdovers to use out to 500 meters with good subsonic loads like the Hornady 208 gr A-Max, American Eagle 220 gr and the PNW Arms subsonic with the excellent Sierra 220 gr Match King OTM projectile."

Hi-Lux Optics Uni-Dial Scope Delivers Life-Time Hunting Experiences

I'm writing you to give your company an evaluation on your product!..

Let me just say that between me and my wife (Ruth) we have had a whirl wind the last three years!!  You see, three years ago I won an elk contest and the first prize was a custom made 30/06 rifle,  topped with your LEATHERWOOD/HI-LUX UNI-DIALSERIES.  To be honest, I'd really never heard of your company!   So, I was a little skeptic at first and was looking to upgrade with another scope that I knew about, and  already own!

But you see, I was so excited to shoot the new gun!  It had already had the barrel broken-in on the gun range and was sighted to (what they told me at the awards ceremony)  at 1000 yards!   I was told, "It's a shooter!"  So, I said what the heck and headed off to the gun range!   My first three shots at 100 yards was what they told me it was... sub-minute of angle!!   Wow... and the scope was very clear!

I asked myself..."Could this be real?"  So, I took my range finder and found the 500 yard mark on the range and set up my 30'' metal plate target! Three more shots at 500 yards...with a 5 inch group!   

That next year, I drew an antelope tag and was lucky enough to find a Boone & Crockett buck...but he was 501 yard away.  I had the confidence in the gun and your scope, so I dropped the big boy! Next was my wife's hunt where she took a Coues-Whitetail buck at 584 yards...with 7 of family and friends watching...she dropped the buck!   Everybody couldn't believe it!   That's the day the rifle got its neck name "Freak Nasty"! That year I also took a 3x3 desert mule deer buck at 375 yards.

Then came the most important hunt of my life...for DESERT BIGHORN SHEEP!   First 300 ram of a lifetime was down! The story is coming out in Trophy Hunter Magazine 2013 summer issue, where I credit your scope as some of the equipment I used!  I just want to thank you for a product that I can count on every time I pull the trigger!  I'm sending some of my photo's with your scope in the picture, hope you enjoy as much as I did.

Thank you!
